Snorkeling Injury Attorney
Many cruise lines are known for offering a wide variety of activities and offshore excursions. Snorkeling is a common cruise activity, and as a result is typically advertised as a family friendly activity, and in most instances, it is a fun and safe activity. While not as dangerous as SCUBA diving, snorkeling injuries unfortunately can still occur.
Founding attorney Geoff Probst has over 30 years of diving and snorkeling experience, and is able to offer a knowledgeable approach to handling snorkeling injuries. Common snorkeling injuries are listed below.
- Injuries from animals. (jelly fish stings, sea urchin injuries)
- Injuries from swimming into something (These injuries can occur when water visibility is reduced)
- Hypothermia (Typically occurs when a person stays in the water too long, and is exposed after exiting the water)
- Cuts from coral or rocks
Despite all the precautions a cruise passenger may take, faulty equipment; poor instruction; dangerous conditions; or other negligence on the part of a cruise line can result in snorkeling injuries.
We can help you and your family if you or a loved one is injured while snorkeling due to cruise line negligence. We aggressively fight for a victim’s right to secure the maximum compensation available under the law.
Snorkeling can be a great way to have access to marine life and enjoy the water. Although it is a relatively safe water activity, accidents can still happen. Faulty equipment; hazardous conditions; and failure to warn of dangers specific to the snorkeling area can all contribute to accidents, leading to various types of snorkeling injuries.
If the negligence or recklessness of a cruise line, its employee, or agent caused a snorkeling accident, you may be entitled to recover for injuries. Contact The Probst Law Firm today to discuss your snorkeling accident.
