Cruise ship sexual assault occurs far more often than many people realize. Attorney Jack Hickey has been assisting victims of cruise ship sexual assault and rape for nearly two decades. Prior to working with victims of cruise line negligence, Hickey worked with the cruise companies themselves, as part of their defense team. This unique experience gives Hickey a uncommon perspective on cruise line legal tactics and arguments, experience that he uses to help his clients fight the cruise companies.
In this clip INSIDE EDITION interviews a woman who was raped aboard a cruise ship. As can be seen, often times cruise companies have a set of policies which are violated by their crew members. These violations put passengers at risk.
