Cruise and Boating Accidents
Pilots of recreational boats and personal watercraft have a duty to pilot their craft with reasonable care, have speed limits and other requirements, as do cruise ships and commercial vessels like fishing crafts. With regard to cruise ships, many cruise lines require passengers to sign lengthy and often confusing contracts, which can be confusing for someone injured in a related accident to decipher when facing a personal injury suit.
Cruise passengers can be injured in slip and fall accidents, during offshore excursions, when swimming in a pool, by collisions with other vessels or even in assaults by other passengers or crew members. Passengers can even become sick from contaminated beverages or food. Difficulties are often compounded when cruise lines inadequately train their staff and crew to properly handle such situations. Victims and their families deserve, and are entitled to receive, compensation for these acts of negligence.
