Cruise Passenger Claims

Claims for Injured Cruise Passengers

Cruise lines must exercise reasonable care for passenger safety. This requirement is broad. The carrier is not only required to exercise such care in its acts onboard the ship, it must also exercise reasonable care for passenger safety while passengers embark or disembark and, in many cases, during shoreside excursions, including those conducted by contractors. A passenger may recover for injuries incurred during a cruise if the passenger can prove that the carrier failed to exercise reasonable care, and that the failure caused the passenger’s injuries. Additionally, cruise lines are also liable for passenger injuries when the carrier’s employees intentionally injure a passenger. In such cases, the passenger does not need to prove the carrier failed to exercise reasonable care. The passenger need only prove the employee intentionally injured the passenger.
