Traumatic Brain Injury on a Cruise Ship
It is estimated that 1.4 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. Unfortunately, due to the sometimes rocky conditions at sea, passengers on cruise ships are exposed to an elevated risk of falls or other events that could result in traumatic brain injury. Cruise ship staff members have a responsibility to mitigate the risk of accidents that could result in traumatic brain injury. They also have a responsibility to act quickly and efficiently if a guest has suffered an injury on board. If the conditions of the ship or negligence of a staff member contributed to or exacerbated your injury, the experienced attorneys at Louis A. Vucci, P.A. may be able to advocate for you.
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
It is important to be aware of the symptoms of traumatic brain injury in order to best communicate with the health care professional on board. If you or another passenger is exhibiting any of the symptoms listed below, the accident may have caused traumatic brain injury:
- Confusion and disorientation
- Memory loss
- Changes in behavior
- Having trouble speaking
- Nausea and vomiting
These symptoms can range from mild to severe. However, if you or a loved one suffers from any of these symptoms, be sure to seek medical attention immediately, and secure legal representation as soon as possible to determine if your rights were properly upheld.
