Cruise ship accidents seem rare, but when they happen, they can be devastating for those involved. Falling overboard is no exception, and these kinds of accidents can result in significant injuries, and sometimes even the wrongful death of those involved. While some falling overboard incidents might be a passenger’s responsibility, other situations are actually the fault of a cruise ship manager or crew.
Attorney Louis A. Vucci P.A. knows how devastating falling overboard can be for a victim and his or her family. Fortunately, when it is the fault of another party, the victim can file a lawsuit against the responsible party. When successful, these lawsuits can provide a victim with much-needed financial compensation and justice.
Potential Causes of Falling Overboard
Falling overboard on a cruise ship can happen due to many different circumstances, but some of them might be the fault or responsibility of the ship manager. For example, some potential causes of a person’s falling overboard might include:
Weak or damaged railings
Failure to supervise, especially children
Failed security procedures
Negligent operation of cruise ship
All of these circumstances could potentially make an innocent cruise ship passenger fall overboard.
