After being injured on a cruise ship, you are probably wondering whether or not the cruise company may have been at fault for your injuries. Many people may automatically blame themselves, or erroneously believe that a fellow passenger was at fault. But the truth is that cruise companies such as Carnival Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean are collectively sued hundreds of times per year, and the primary claim against them is that their negligence resulted in the injury of their passengers.
The list of injuries which can result from a cruise company’s negligence is extensive. Some example include:
- Sexual assault
- Injuries on rides and attractions
- Food borne illnesses
- Passenger overboards and disappearances
