Cruise Automatic Doors Accident

Cruise Automatic Doors Accident

Another reason our law firm often called involves doors on the cruise ship. The wind and the vacuum created on the backside of the ship can cause other doors, like the entrance door, to close, all by itself. And unfortunately, these can all cause injury. The electric eyes are sometimes not well maintained. So when people walk up, and the door opens, then they turn to talk to the person that they are walking with. As a consequence, they're not moving anymore.

For that second or two or three, the electric eye fails to detect there is actually a presence because no one is moving. The sliding glass door closes. Persons unaware of this. They turn, they start to walk through the door where they were going to walk to seconds earlier. Very serious injuries can result as a consequence of that. These are the types of claims that we have handled for many years.

After my accident I contacted them right away. I was able to see them the same day and was kept in contact throughout the process. Everyone in the office was very accommodating, polite and professional. I highly recommend Brais Law and think very highly of their lead attorneys. They helped me WIN my case, and I am forever grateful. They went above and beyond to assist me. Thank you all so very much. H.S.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.
