While cruise lines often take great effort to ensure the safety of their passengers, staircases, wet decks and unstable surfaces, in general, all pose risk of potential accidents. For example, a passenger may be injured while boarding a ship on the Florida coast. Or, a passenger may sustain an injury in a slip-and-fall accident while cruising toward his or her next port of call.
At The Umansky Law Firm, we represent Florida residents and out-of-state tourists who have been injured in cruise ship accidents. We also represent people whose family members and loved ones died in cruise ship accidents. Our lawyers guide clients through the process of filing a personal injury claim to recover compensation for their injuries and financial losses.
Injuries Onboard Cruise Lines
Our firm holds ship owners and companies accountable when the safety of their passengers is compromised.
Accidents can include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents caused by slippery walking surfaces, loose railings, poorly maintained stairwells and inadequate lighting
- Physical attacks and sexual assaults at the hands of poorly trained and improperly screened staff
- Food poisoning and food-borne illnesses caused by contaminated food
- Catastrophic injuries and death caused by inadequate emergency evacuation plans and safety equipment
If you sustained an injury in United States waters, along the coast of Florida or while aboard a vessel on the high seas, talk to a lawyer at The Umansky Law Firm. If the injury occurred more than three miles from shore, maritime law will apply. Our firm has substantial knowledge of maritime laws as well as determining liability and compensation under these laws.
