Pursuing Failure to Treat Claims
While out at sea on a cruise ship, passengers depend solely on the crew and onboard medical professionals to respond to their injuries and ailments. So, when the cruise ship medical staff disregards injuries or fails to recognize the signs or symptoms of your ailment, there is little else you will be able to do until you reach port. When this failure to act results in injury or contributes to an intensified health issue, the cruise ship company may be held liable for any related damages.
Dangers Associated with a Failure to Treat
Though the medical staff is trained to react to most injuries and identify symptoms of illness, they may fail to do so in an acceptable fashion and contribute to further injury or health complications. Among the most troubling consequences of the failure to treat upon a cruise ship may include:
- The prolonged experience of injury or illness
- The spread of illness
- Heart attack
Our legal team is prepared to help you pursue financial restitution from the cruise liner whose failure to act contributed to any deterioration or complication of health.
