Fort Lauderdale Cruise Ship Activities Injury Attorney
Cruise ships offer a wide variety of activities onboard the ship to keep passengers entertained, and the larger the ship, the more activities passengers can participate in while at sea. The typical cruise ship will have thousands of rooms, at least a dozen floors, shopping areas, restaurants, bars, theaters, auditoriums, pools, exercise rooms, and more. Some of the largest cruise ships even have rock climbing walls, ice skating rinks, and zip lines. While cruise ship activities can be a lot of fun for you and your family, they also cause a number of serious accidents for passengers. At Boone & Davis, our Fort Lauderdale cruise ship activities injury attorneys understand the pain and trauma that can come from being injured by a cruise ship activity and are prepared to protect your rights to compensation for the harm caused by the negligence onboard a cruise.
Common Causes of Cruise Ship Activity Injuries
Cruise ships have a duty to keep their passengers safe from harm while participating in onboard activities and can be held liable for damages when their negligence causes an accident. Common causes of cruise ship activity injuries include food poisoning, allergic reactions, overserving alcohol, swimming pool accidents, injuries sustained from climbing walls, being struck by unsecured objects, escalator and elevator accidents, contraction of Legionnaires Disease, equipment malfunctions, and more. If you are injured while participating in a cruise ship activity you need an experienced personal injury attorney representing your case against cruise lines that will do everything in their power to mitigate your claim.
How a Lawyer Can Help
Cruise lines have teams of attorneys and insurance adjusters that work on every case of injury that occurs while onboard a cruise ship. They will start gathering evidence within hours or days of the accident, trying to prove that you were at fault or to minimize the damage as much as possible for the cruise ship. Hiring a lawyer with experience handling cruise ship injury cases is your best chance at preserving your claims and getting the compensation you deserve. A lawyer will open their own investigation into the case, beginning with gathering evidence and witness statements that corroborate your claims. An attorney also serves as a shield between you and the insurers, handling all communication and negotiation with the insurance companies and cruise line regarding a settlement for your case. If a full and fair settlement offer cannot be reached, an attorney can take your case to court and make the best possible arguments for your injury claims.
