While going on vacation on a cruise liner can be one of the most fun, entertaining, and relaxing ways to go to places all over the world, there is a wide variety of ways passengers can and occasionally do get injured on them.

Cruise Line Accidents and Injuries
With the advent of the airplane and advances in automobiles, travel by ship to get from one place to another has continually declined in popularity with the exception of vacation cruise liners. In the 1980s, modern luxury cruises became a popular niche market, and they have continued to gain popularity amongst people of all ages, from all over the world.
Unfortunately, with this increase in popularity has also come an increase in mild to severe injuries for vacationing passengers (as well as for people who work on cruise liners). The causes of these accidents are far and wide ranging from malfunctioning ship equipment to dangerous environments caused by the negligence of the crew or one of the companies involved in making the ship available to consumers.
The following are just a few of the many reasons that people have become physically and/or emotionally injured or ill while on a cruise liner:
– Food poisoning
– Water poisoning
– Illnesses caused by highly contagious coronaviruses (Covid-19), noroviruses, and other gastrointestinal
– Slip or trip and fall accidents
– Lack of proper lighting
– Poorly maintained stairways, walkways, gangways, etc.
– Poorly maintained or faulty recreational equipment
– Trauma from enduring the complete collapse of sewage, power, and propulsion
– Collisions with other vessels, as well as docks, animals, etc.
If you were injured because of any of the above reasons or one not mentioned, it does not matter whether or not the ship you were on was old or brand new, if your injury was because of another person or entity’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for expenses that are the result of your injuries.
