Cruises are a popular vacation option and a great way to get a change of scenery. Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen on cruise ships, perhaps more often than many people think. In addition, pursuing a claim for injuries suffered while on a cruise ship can be more complicated than in many other situations. If you’ve suffered a serious injury while on a cruise, we recommend that you speak with an experienced cruise ship injury lawyer as soon as possible.
Cruise Ship Injuries Can Be Serious
The most common accidents on cruise ships are the same as accidents that can happen anywhere else. Due to the nature of the environment (a moving ship, with narrow passageways and confined quarters), your injuries may be more severe due to the nature of the environment. Limited options for medical treatment can make an already bad situation even worse.
