Cruise Ship Tender Cases We Handle
Louis A. Vucci, P.A. has extensive experience with personal injury claims, primarily focused on cruise liners. Our focus has allowed us to successfully help those who have incurred personal injuries from accidents on tenders. This includes:
- Slip and fall accidents: When passengers are exiting or boarding the tender, It’s vital that the tender be secure and comfortable to board, with a dry deck and no instability or movement of the boat. When the tender is not secure to board, accidents may occur.
- Capsizes: When the tender is handled in a reckless or negligent manner, it could capsize, putting all of the occupants in danger.
- Excessive speeding / Aggressive driving: Negligent driving of a tender can result in injured passengers from being thrown overboard or thrown against different parts of the boat that may cause injury. Passengers who have been hurt by reckless driving of a tender should seek representation to get compensation for undue damages caused by the cruise ship’s employees.
- Poor operation/lack of skilled crew members: Negligent operation and a lack of qualified crew members on board on can lead to many mishaps which passengers are not and should not be responsible for. For those hurt by poor operation of a tender, an experienced attorney can help you recoup your losses and cope with the injury better.
- Poor communication: Poor communication between the crew and passengers on a tender may result in a serious accident. It’s imperative that cruise lines keep a close eye on their passengers and ensure their safety along every step of the way.
Cruise lines have a responsibility to protect their passengers at all times, and this includes when they are on a tender. If a passenger is hurt in an accident, the cruise ship should be held responsible for the cost of medical care as well as any pain, suffering, and mental anguish the victim suffers.
How We Can Help
If a passenger is 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. In the wake of a serious injury accident on a cruise ship tender, it is natural to feel overwhelmed by the pressures that you are suddenly forced to face. Many questions will arise; “How will I pay all my medical bills?” “Will I be out from work for long?” “Will I be able to keep my job?” “Should I hire an attorney?”
As a cruise ship excursion injury victim, you may be entitled to compensation that will ease the financial pressure and stress that comes with severe personal injuries that were no fault of your own. This includes expenses such as medical bills for treatment and long-term care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. However, without an attorney, it’s rather unlikely you’ll get the full, fair compensation you deserve. In fact, people who hire an attorney are awarded approximately three times more than those who choose to represent themselves or settle on their own. Legal procedures are daunting with a lot of paperwork, communication with insurance companies, other negotiation with others who are looking out for their own best interest. At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., we’re willing to bet on ourselves and on your case and do not charge for our services unless we win.
