Cruise Ship Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers
With all the activities available on cruise ships, cruises are an enjoyable and popular vacation choice for a large number of families and friends. However, no one expects their safety or well-being to be compromised while they are trying to enjoy the amenities and opportunities provided by their vacation. Unfortunately, cruise ship passengers can be exposed to serious dangers if the ship is not properly maintained, including slip and fall accidents. Should a person fall on a cruise ship, he or she could sustain devastating injuries, something no one wants on what should be a fun and memorable trip.
At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., our lawyers believe that a fun and relaxing vacation with your loved ones should never be ruined by a slip and fall injury that could have been prevented. As such, anyone in this situation should consider filing a passenger claim, seeking compensation for the undue harm they have suffered.
Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common accidents that occur aboard a cruise ship, largely due to the amount of items found on board and water pooling. Some other common causes of slip and fall accidents on cruise ships include:
- Failure to fix damaged flooring
- Poor lighting
- Failure to replace or repair stair railings
- Poorly maintained public areas
Cruise line workers have a duty to properly maintain and clean the ship in order to protect passengers from being involved in an accident. When this duty is not met, causing an innocent person injury, those responsible for the accident should be held accountable.
