Cruise Ship Docking Accidents

Cruise ship collisions are serious accidents that may cause severe damage to both the vessel itself and its passengers. Unfortunately, cruise ship captain and crew negligence can lead to collisions with docks and ports that jolt the ship and its passengers. This sudden movement may cause passengers to fall or hit something that could result in physical trauma. Untrained crew members, faulty equipment, and distracted captains are all reasons as to why a docking accident might occur. In serious cases, dock accidents may cause damage to the hull that can cause it to flood or sink.

Serious Injuries Caused By Docking Accidents

Injuries involving cruise ship docking accidents may range from minor injuries to more substantial ones. Some of the more serious injuries associated with these types of accidents include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Neck injuries
  • Brain trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord damage

These injuries may be serious and require costly medical attention. Some of these types of physical damages can be life-threatening or cause long-term suffering. Victims of cruise ship accidents may be eligible for financial compensation for any physical and emotional injuries sustained aboard the vessel.
