Going on a Carnival Cruise ship could be a marvelous experience for many people. Carnival cruise lines have many activities available for their passengers from rock climbing to water parks. The majority of activities on Carnival Cruise ships are not supervised or are being supervised by someone who is not qualified to do so. If a person is injured during any of these activities, the medical center is more than likely not a suitable place to be treated in. They will merely provide first aid.
Maritime injury laws are very difficult to comprehend and the contract that is displayed on the passenger’s ticket tends to be written in a way that is not able to be understood by the passenger. Issues like the statute of limitations, filing a claim, and other stuff relevant to a person being injured on a Carnival Cruise ship is displayed in the fine print of the ticket. The less a person understands about injuries aboard a cruise ship, the better it is for the cruise line because a person will not know what to do. Percy Martinez Law Firm can provide all the options available and the knowledge of what needs to be done after they have been injured on a Carnival Cruise ship.
What Injuries Tend to Occur the Most on Carnival Cruises?
A passenger aboard a Carnival Cruise deserves to be treated with reasonable care and safety. The cruise line must inspect every inch of the cruise ship to ensure that no one is able to get hurt. Along with these duties, the federal shipping act has additional things that the cruise line must meet. When a cruise line fails to do the above, passengers can become injured. Some injuries that occur include:
Crimes: Even though people go on a cruise to have a good time, crimes still happen. Some people go on cruise ships just to harm others. Crimes like rapes, sexual assaults, robberies, or murders are just some crimes that can occur on cruise ships. These crimes can be attributed to a lack of security. How is it possible that another passenger is able to enter a person’s cabin and rape them? Where are the cameras and the people who are supposed to be watching?
Slip and Falls: Cruise ships have different activities that include water like water parks and swimming pools. Along with these activities, passengers can spill drinks. A person can slip and fall in a multitude of places on the cruise ship. If the cruise ship did not clean up the mess, they can be found liable for the passenger’s injuries in the slip and fall.
Death: Deaths on a cruise ship can occur in various ways. If inadequate medical treatment was provided, a crime was performed, a person jumped overboard or fell, any of these can lead to a passenger’s death. Again, all of these ways of dying are preventable.
