Boarding a cruise ship in New Orleans can be the beginning of a memorable experience. Sometimes a happy time can turn into a disaster. Unfortunately, injuries on cruise ships are quite common. Sorting out the process for handling cruise ship injury claims can be confusing. Maritime laws, international treaties and agreements between governments can complicate the recovery process.
The highest priority for the crew and companies involved with a cruise ship is to ensure that you are safe. Consequently, you have a right expect and receive safe and hazard free accommodations.
Even though an injury is the last thing you would expect on a vacation, cruise ship injuries can occur when you least expect it. However, there are limitations in suing for a cruise ship injury while on the ship or even on a cruise ship excursion.
There are many examples of cruise ship injuries such as slip and falls, tender boat injuries, wrongful death, gangway injuries, food poisoning, excursion injuries, crewmember injuries, assault on a cruise ship as well as cargo damage.
