Tender Accident Lawyers
In order to transport passengers to land for on-shore excursions, many cruise lines use small boats called tenders. While these small boats are typically safe, many people have been injured while aboard a tender. The tender accident attorneys at Louis A. Vucci, P.A., understand how frustrating injuries can be for cruise ship passengers, and we work to make sure that cruise lines are held accountable for the injuries that they cause to passengers. Cruise ships are responsible for the safety of passengers while they are on cruise ship property, including tenders. Those who are injured while on tenders can face serious injuries that can not only keep them from enjoying vacation but also prevent them from returning to work. At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., our lawyers are experienced with helping those who have been injured on tenders seek the compensation they need from liable cruise ships.
Causes of Tender Boat Injuries
There are several causes of injuries on tenders, some of which include:
- Slip and fall accidents while boarding and exiting
- Capsizes resulting in passengers swimming in dangerous or rough water
- Excessive speed resulting in passengers being thrown overboard
In the event that passengers are injured while on a tender, they may face expensive medical bills and lengthy recovery periods. The liable cruise ship should always be held responsible for the related costs. If you have been injured in such an accident, our tender accident lawyers are prepared to fight for your legal rights and interests.
