Accidents in Europe’s Ports & Locations

Whether you are taking a transatlantic cruise or flying to start your cruise overseas, cruising along Europe’s coastline is an unforgettable experience. With unique geographical features and cultures that date back centuries, touring Europe on a cruise ship is unlike visiting anywhere in the United States.

Maritime Lawyers for U.S. Passengers and Crewmembers Injured on European Cruises

Unfortunately, while cruising Europe is a unique experience, it presents the same risks as cruising anywhere else. Passengers and crewmembers alike face various health and safety risks onboard, and passengers often get injured while at the port and during shore excursions as well. If you have been injured on a European cruise, it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible, as taking legal action promptly can be critical for protecting your legal rights.

Slip and falls, contusions, drowning incidents and other serious injuries are often associated with cruise ship pool accidents. If the cruise line failed to ensure the area is made safe for passengers to use then you may have a right to compensation for their negligence.
