Suing A Cruise Ship After A Slip-And-Fall Accident

Going on a cruise can be a great way to unwind and explore the world, offering a luxurious escape from the stresses of everyday life. However, it’s important to acknowledge that cruise ship accidents can happen, including slip-and-fall incidents where passengers may sustain injuries. In such cases, injured passengers may be able to file a lawsuit against the cruise ship company to seek compensation for their damages.

With over 30 years of dedicated experience, Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, is committed to advocating for the rights of injured passengers with compassion and skill. While many Miami-based cruise lines – including Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Carnival and Celebrity – require lawsuits to be filed in Miami-Dade County, our seasoned team is adept at handling these legal requirements on behalf of our clients.

Common Causes Of Slip-And-Fall Accidents On Cruise Ships

Slip-and-fall accidents on cruise ships can occur due to various factors, including:

  • Wet or slippery decks
  • Uneven surfaces
  • Poor lighting
  • Loose handrails
  • Tripping hazards
  • Lack of warnings
  • Neglected maintenance

What Should I Do If Injured In A Slip-And-Fall Accident On A Cruise Ship?

If you are injured in a slip-and-fall accident on a cruise ship, it’s important to take the following steps:

  • Seek medical help promptly.
  • Report the incident immediately.
  • Document the scene.
  • Gather witness information.
  • Keep medical and expense records.
  • Consult a maritime law attorney.

Maritime law works a bit differently from land laws and a lawyer with experience in maritime law such as those with Mark L. Karno & Associates, LLC, can help you better understand how provisions such as the Jones Act may apply to your case. Our attorneys will work hard to see that your rights are protected and that you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
