Yachts, Pleasure Boats, Jet Skis or Fishing Boat Injuries
Passengers on cruise ships can be injured in a variety of ways. Every day, passengers sustain injuries due to accidents aboard ships. This also includes activities that are a part of the vacation package but not necessarily while you are physically on the cruise ship itself.
Many cruise line vacation packages include activities and mini-tours on yachts, pleasure boats, jet skis, chartered fishing trips and more. If you or someone you know has been injured while attending one of these activities then you might be entitled to compensation.
Every cruise ship has a legal duty to every passenger and crew member to exercise what is known as reasonable care under the circumstances. Chartered cruises are no exception to this rule. What this means is that the cruise line does not have to provide an accident-free ship but must take reasonable precautions to protect passengers from danger.
No matter the type of accident that you or your loved one were involved in, it is your right to hire an attorney to investigate the accident. If the accident is a direct result of the cruise line’s negligence then Attorney Geoffrey Probst will work with you through each step of the process with the goal of getting you or your loved one the compensation that you deserve.
