Cruise Ship Injuries

Enjoying a cruise to visit an exotic location or explore a new place around the world is an event people typically plan for over a long period time. The leisurely pace of cruise ship travel, as compared to driving or flying, allows for the opportunity to relax and to unwind from the stress of normal life.

However, being on a cruise ship in the middle of a body of water does bring the risk of serious cruise ship injuries if something goes wrong, or a safety issue on the ship is not quickly addressed.  If a cruise ship injury does occur, who is responsible, and can passengers sue the cruise operator for negligence in a personal injury lawsuit? These are questions that can be answered by cruise ship attorneys from Chuck Geary Law in Stuart, Florida.


Maritime Law

One of the most important things to know about suing a cruise line for cruise ship injuries is that these companies are governed by maritime law, which governs vessels at sea or on the water, and not the normal tort law that regulates negligence cases on land. Also, the negligence standards for cruise lines differ, because these cruise ship companies are regulated by the rules that apply to common carriers. A common carrier is any company that transports goods or passengers on set routes for a pre-established rate.
