Common Causes of Injury on Sightseeing Cruises and Boat Tours
Sightseeing and tours are not all fun and games for everyone involved, particularly when injuries occur that have life-altering and long-term effects. For instance, medical bills associated with back injuries or broken bones from slip-and-falls can quickly add up and may require long-term pain management or even surgery and rehabilitation. Some of the most common injuries experienced by passengers of sightseeing cruises and tours are:
- Equipment malfunctions
- Physical and sexual assaults
When passengers are harmed due to negligent security that allows for assaults to happen or due to hazards on the surface of the boat that can lead to trips and falls, the owner of the property is generally liable. Your boating accident claim will be filed with their insurance company, and for your complete damages to be covered, you will need to assess and then prove them with evidence that would be admissible in court. An experienced sightseeing cruise injury attorney can help discuss your options.
