Cruise lines are held accountable for any injuries that their passengers suffer both on and off the ship. According to Florida law, it is the non-delegable responsibility of cruise lines to ensure that passengers are safe while being transported between the ship and the shore. If a passenger is injured on a cruise ship, tender, or while in port, they must seek immediate medical attention and report the incident. Cruise lines often use a “lack of reported incidents” as their defense strategy, which highlights the importance of reporting the incident right away. It is also highly recommended that passengers consult with a qualified USA cruise ship accident attorney who is admitted to practice in Federal Court. Our team of cruise ship injury lawyers is well-versed in federal maritime laws, which regulate the death of a passenger due to the negligence of the cruise line. Given that the cruise line industry is a multi-billion dollar industry with a team of highly experienced maritime lawyers, passengers must have skilled legal representation on their side too.
