Cruise ship passenger Injuries and accidents sometimes occur while visiting ports of call during a shoreside excursion. Cruise lines often argue that they are not responsible for “off-ship” injuries to their cruise passengers because of a signed waiver of liability clause or, alternatively, that the shoreside concessionaire is an “independent contractor” over whom the cruise line had no control. In certain instances, however, the law says otherwise. The cruise ship shore excursion accident lawyers at Brais Law Firm are experienced with assessing if a cruise line is liable for injuries occurring ashore during a cruise ship passenger’s shoreside excursion.
