Sightseeing and Tour Boat Claims

If you look at the ocean alongside the major coastlines of America, you cannot help but notice the growing number of cruise ships and recreational boating opportunities. If you or a loved one has been injured while trying to enjoy a sightseeing adventure or tour, you could be entitled to compensation. Whether or not you have a case and what your damages might be, can be difficult to determine. To get started, you can request a free initial case review from a sightseeing cruise injury attorney at Brais Law Firm. Despite the best efforts of cruise lines and companies offering various types of adventures, injuries can and will happen due to employee negligence, equipment malfunctions, and other causes. Each year tens of thousands of tourists embark on the shore to take local cruises in which sightseeing is an element or to simply cruise around for the afternoon hoping to see some dolphins while watching the sunset. What they don’t expect is to be injured. Whether or not you have a case and what your damages might be can be difficult to determine.

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:

  • Slip-and-falls
  • Equipment malfunctions

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.
