Cruise Line Liability for FlowRider Accidents
A cruise line has a duty to “exercise reasonable care under the circumstances.” With respect to the Flowrider, that means making sure the ride itself is properly maintained and monitored, making sure that the crew supervising the activity are properly trained, and making sure the guests who ride the Flowrider are properly instructed and supervised. Unfortunately, the cruise lines often fail to take those reasonable precautions and many serious injuries have occurred as a result. Many things can go wrong with an activity as dangerous and unique as the Flowrider, but our team knows what to look for and where to look when things go wrong. We search through historical data, recordsand statements from prior accidents, and records that are publicly available from the many lawsuits that came before yours to start uncovering the cause of your accident. But often discovering what caused the accident isn’t the first hurdle we have to overcome. Most cruise lines require passengers to sign waivers in order to use things like the Flowrider. While those waivers may make it appear that you have no recourse, they may be unenforceable under certain circumstances.
If you have been injured, or lost a loved one due to a surfing accident that was caused by another’s negligence, it is best to contact a FlowRider accident attorney who can protect your legal rights. Our firm helps victims who have suffered from FlowRider injuries, and families who have lost loved ones, by ensuring that the negligent party is held accountable.
