Accidents on Cruise Ships
Maritime law is the body of law that may govern your claim if you are injured while on a cruise on a Cunard Line ship. This complex body of law governs activities on navigable waters like the ocean, and it includes federal and state laws, conventions, and treaties.
Many different kinds of accidents and mishaps can result in injuries on a cruise ship. A common type of accident that occurs on cruise ships is a slip and fall accident. Sometimes the decks are slippery, or something is spilled on a restaurant or dance floor.
Tainted food in prepared meals can result in food poisoning. Cruise ship passengers or crew members may sustain broken bones, disc herniation, ligament tears, loss of eyesight, traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, amputations, or miscarriages due to trauma.
