Cruise Ship Injuries
Cruise ships operate in the waters off Pompano Beach. Many dangerous conditions exist on cruise ships, especially hazards that can lead to slip and fall accidents. Such hazards include water on deck by a swimming pool, spilled food by a food station, or spilled liquids by a bar. A cruise line’s failure to eliminate these hazards can lead to painful injuries for you or your loved ones, and you may have grounds for legal action as a result.
If you are contemplating a lawsuit due to an injury sustained on a cruise, it is important to keep in mind that cruise lines print restrictions related to lawsuits on passenger tickets. Many require passengers to agree to a shortened period in which to bring a claim. Additionally, slip and fall injuries in Florida may only be compensated in instances where an owner actually knew or had constructive knowledge of a dangerous condition. This is a more difficult standard for plaintiffs to meet than some other states’ slip and fall laws. Maritime rules or the laws of other states may also apply in cruise ship cases, and can differ from Florida law. Due to the complexity and urgency of these cases, it is important to contact an experienced personal attorney right away if you have been injured in a slip and fall or other accident on a cruise ship. You may be entitled to compensation for any medical costs or other damages you have sustained, and a knowledgeable attorney can assist you in determining the best strategy for pursing those amounts.
