When you go on a cruise, you expect to have a fun, memorable and safe time. You expect the cruise ship’s amenities to be well-maintained and properly managed, and you expect to be warned of any risks involved with the activities onboard. Unfortunately, while these expectations are reasonable, they aren’t always met. As a result, many cruise passengers and parents find themselves in need of a FlowRider accident lawyer. A FlowRider is an artificial wave simulator that allows cruise passengers to surf and skimboard on deck.
While the apparatus is intended to be inviting for newbies, experience shows that FlowRiders can be extremely unsafe—particularly for inexperienced users. While cruise lines should provide adequate instruction and oversight, and while they should ensure that their FlowRiders are operating appropriately, many do not. Additionally, even when cruise lines take these steps, FlowRiders still present risks for serious injuries.
