Cruise Companies and Excursion Injury Liability

Proudly Representing Cruise Ship Cases in Miami, Nearby Areas of Florida and Nationwide

Injuries sustained by cruise ship passengers while on excursion can be extremely complex to prosecute, and for this reason an experienced attorney could be a make-or-break difference in such a case.

Excursion injuries are not only usually sustained on foreign soil, but also may include multiple defendants including:

  • Cruise lines
  • Tour operators and their subsidiaries
  • Contractors for tour operators
  • Equipment manufacturers

Many passengers rely on the recommendations of cruise companies when making decisions relating to shore excursions. After a passenger is injured during a cruise vacation excursion, it is not uncommon to find that the cruise line was working in conjunction with the excursion provider, often times in a joint venture. In such cases the cruise companies may actually profit from the sale of the excursions.
