Cruise Ship Ice Skating Accident & Injury Claims

While you might think that ice skating on a ship sailing over the ocean seems new and intriguing, it is more common than you might think and is a staple on Royal Caribbean cruises and others. If you or a member of your family has been injured in a cruise ship ice skating accident, connect with a cruise ship ice skating accident lawyer from Brais Law Firm.  

The purpose of going on a cruise is generally to experience some well-deserved relaxation and recreation, but that does not stop accidents from happening. The damages you are able to collect will depend on the circumstances of your case, and the best way to determine your legal options is by speaking with a lawyer. For your risk-free, cost-free initial case assessment, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and earnings potential, and in some instances, even for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment in life.

Ice Skating On A Cruise Ship Is Risky And the Cruise Line Could Be Liable For Injuries

When guests are allowed to participate in activities, the cruise ship is responsible for providing a safe and well-managed environment for the guests to enjoy the activities. If you are injured due to poor rink supervision, lack of rink maintenance, defective equipment, or other causes within the control of the cruise ship, you may have cause for a lawsuit against the cruise line

Cruise lines that engage in negligent behavior onboard or off-ship that injures passengers, including recreational activities like ice-skating, are responsible for injuries caused to passengers. 

Cruise Ships Owe Passengers a Duty of Care 

Negligence is a legal concept that basically means that a party breached a duty they had to another, and that breach resulted in an injury that caused damage. Cruise ships must use reasonable care at all times concerning their passengers, and when this duty of care is violated, they may be liable for the injuries and damages those passengers incur. A cruise ship ice skating accident lawyer can help explain your legal rights. 

Consider And Be Aware of the Terms of Your Cruise Ship Ticket

All too often, your legal right to file a claim for injuries sustained on a cruise ship will be controlled by the language on the cruise line passenger’s ticket, along with the documents you are required to sign during booking. These documents outline your contractual agreement with the cruise line and will generally discuss how long you have to file a claim and present notice, where your claim will be filed and heard, the laws that apply, and the ways in which you are able to pursue a legal claim.
