Cruise Ship Sexual Assault Lawyer
Cruise lines have a responsibility to do everything possible to ensure that the safety and well-being of their passengers is never unnecessarily compromised, and this responsibility extends to ensuring that cruise ship staff and other passengers pose no threat to those on their vessels. Sadly, too many cruise lines do not put appropriate hiring and safety procedures in place. This can have devastating consequences for cruise passengers, including the possibility of rape or sexual assault.
Cruise lines are responsible for the actions of their staff and for providing passenger security, and when something as serious as a sexual assault on the part of staff members or other passengers occurs, the cruise ship company may be held liable for a victim’s physical and psychological trauma.

Vucci, P.A. knows how hard it can be to cope with this type of trauma, and we are dedicated to ensuring that those responsible for the attack be held accountable.
