Physical Assault on a Cruise Ship Lawyers
Passengers aboard cruise ships expect to enjoy a safe, amenable environment for the duration of their voyage. However, there are occasional problems that arise for cruise ship passengers. These problems occur most commonly because of cruise liner negligence. In more serious cases, passengers can be severely injured when physical assault occurs.
Since the companies that own and staff cruise ships are obligated to ensure a safe environment for passengers, they may be held accountable for any injury that occurs as a result of negligence. At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., our lawyers understand the legal obligations that cruise ship companies must uphold for their passengers. Physical assault is unacceptable in any situation, and it can be particularly troubling when it occurs within the confined space of a cruise ship.
Prevention of Physical Assaults on Cruise Ships
Among the responsibilities of cruise liners are the facilitation of a safe environment and staff. Specifically, cruise ships are responsible for providing:
- Adequate lighting
- Functioning cabin locks
- Video surveillance of public areas
- A well-trained and trusted staff
Unfortunately, poorly lit sections of a cruise or malfunctioning locks may help facilitate the occurrence of a preventable physical assault. Louis A. Vucci, P.A. understands the physical and emotional impact that can result from a physical assault, and we work to help injury victims fight for justice.
