Shore Accident Claims
Most cruises make regular stops at various different land locations, allowing cruisers to see local sights, enjoy tourism ashore, and experience the culture of the shore towns. Unfortunately, sometimes these trips ashore go awry, and cruise passengers are injured as a result. There are many different situations that could lead to an injury or accident ashore, but the attorneys at Louis A. Vucci, P.A., know that these are all too often the fault of the cruise ship or cruise line.
Why Should You File a Shore Accident Claim?
When people think of cruise-related accidents, they might not often consider the possibility that an injury could occur off the cruise ship and still be the cruise line’s responsibility. But ashore accidents can easily arise, and situations in which a person may be eligible to file a shore accident claim against the cruise line include:
- Inadequate security services
- Tender accidents
- Dock accidents / collisions
- Defective / malfunctioning equipment
- Motor vehicle accidents
When an unsuspecting passenger on a cruise ship sustains an injury due to these and other possible shore accidents, it is possible to seek financial compensation from the cruise ship or cruise line for the role they played in the accident.
