Cruise Ship Swimming Pool Accidents Lawyers
At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., we are well aware that cruise ship malfunctions or accidents often make headlines, calling attention to these serious issues. However, there are other issues – namely, cruise ship swimming pool accidents – that can plague cruise ship passengers and, although they receive less attention, may have just as serious of an effect on victims and their families.
Almost all cruise ships have at least one, if not several, pools on board. Those who move too quickly or don’t pay attention to their surroundings can easily injure themselves or other people nearby on the slick, hard surfaces that surround pool areas. It is important that cruise lines are extra attentive and provide passengers with an experience that is as safe as possible. Unfortunately, due to negligence in maintaining the safety of these pools, far too many cruise ship passengers sustain serious injuries in and around these pools each year. Those who are victims of swimming pool accidents can often hold the cruise ship or staff financially responsible with the help of an experienced attorney.
At Louis A. Vucci, P.A., we are passionate about assisting victims of accidents aboard cruise ships, so much so that we have dedicated our entire practice to cruise ship liability. If you were injured in a swimming pool accident aboard a cruise ship, contact us today at (786) 375-0344 to schedule a free evaluation of your case and legal options.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Pursuing a claim for a swimming pool accident can be complicated, especially while you are in pain and recovering from a serious injury. After your accident, an insurance agent may contact you with a settlement offer for your injuries. However, this offer is almost certainly a lowball offer that will not cover the full amount of expenses you are likely to face. Furthermore, speaking to these insurance agents can damage your ability to pursue a claim, as they may trick you into making recorded statements that suggest you were at fault for your own injuries.
The fact that your accident took place aboard a cruise ship further complicates matters. Your accident may have occurred in international waters, and the cruise ship may be registered in a country other than the United States. Trying to figure out how to pursue a claim with all of these different factors can be almost impossible on your own.
That’s why you need a dedicated cruise ship injury lawyer. A lawyer will be able to speak to insurance agents and opposing attorneys on your behalf. They can ensure you don’t accidentally hinder your own case and can negotiate for an appropriate settlement. Their knowledge of how injuries in international waters are handled will ensure that the entire process goes smoothly and will likely help you win a much larger settlement than you would on your own, all with as little stress as possible for you.

Causes of Swimming Pool Accidents
There can be many different causes of cruise ship swimming pool accidents, many of which are not the victim’s fault. Plenty of people who are injured at cruise ship swimming pools are quick to blame themselves, but after witnessing numerous serious injuries sustained aboard cruise ships, Louis A. Vucci, P.A. understands that the blame often belongs to the cruise line. If the pool and the surrounding area lack the proper safety measures, and if lifeguards fail to enforce the rules, swimming pool injuries could be the responsibility of the cruise line. For instance, some possible causes include:
- Failure to provide adequate supervision
- Failing to clean or sterilize the pool
- Failure to clean the areas surrounding the pool
- Allowing for aggressive actions and rough play
- Failing to inspect equipment like diving boards or drains
Any of these acts of negligence could result in an innocent person suffering serious injuries in or around a cruise ship swimming pool, something that could likely have been prevented with more care and attention.
