Cruise Ships Are More Dangerous than Unsuspecting Passengers RealizePosted by in personal injury/accident
Cruise ships are more dangerous than unsuspecting passengers realize, but they are dangers that can cause injury or personal violations. Cruise ship lines do not advertise the amount of passengers that suffer injuries, sexual assaults or rape while vacationing on one of their cruise ships. Instead the potential passenger hears about the ports the ship will stop at, the food, the fun and the beauty of the accommodations.
A cruise sounds great, relaxing, getting away from it all on a floating city, but that is not enough to make up for the injuries or sexual assault that can occur on the cruise. Sexual assault alone has become so prevalent that laws have been passed to help protect the victims’ rights after suffering an attack while on the seas. These laws help to hold the cruise line company responsible for not keeping the passenger safe.
There are other injuries that can occur when on a vessel of this type that is a floating city, like food poisoning, areas that are not properly maintained that is a slip and fall hazard and other injuries that can occur. The passenger is counting on the cruise ship employees and cruise line to provide a safe environment, but that is not always the case. As a resident of Los Angeles when cruise ships are more dangerous than unsuspecting passengers realize they need the assistance of a Los Angeles cruise ships injury attorney. Whether you are from Barcelona Spain, or San Francisco, California, you need to understand basic treaties and maritime laws.

Maritime Law Holds Operators Accountable
The laws to hold the cruise line and employees responsible are complex, because they involve both laws that are upheld in our justice system and Maritime laws. Not all attorneys have the experience and knowledge of these laws to protect their clients rights after they have been injured, sexually assaulted or a victim of rape. The attorney that focuses on cruise ship injury is the one attorney that will be able to protect the injured victim’s rights and at the same time hold the cruise line company accountable for not keeping the passenger safe from harm. This is negligence on their and their employee’s part. The Los Angeles cruise ship attorneys (Click Here) will also be aware that legal claims against the ship’s owner and employee’s must be filed within one year from the date of the incident, if it is not then the justice system cannot help the victim making it even more important to have an experienced attorney in this area of the law.
