Cruise Ship Slip and Fall

Video Transcript

One of the most frequent reasons that we're called is in the case of a passenger slip and fall on board a cruise ship. The attorney representing your interest has to prove that there existed a dangerous, defective or unsafe condition. Be that a substance on the floor that the cruise line crew members attempted to mop up or clean up but didn't do a really great job. These things can all lead to slip and fall accidents.

The attorney handling your case needs to identify what the dangerous, unsafe or defective condition was. He or she needs to prove that it existed for a sufficient period of time and that by the exercise of reasonable care, the cruise line could have minimally warned and as well corrected or remedied the condition. If they haven't done those things, that cruise passenger has a valid slip and fall claim against the cruise line.
