When taking to the high seas for vacation, people are often injured while aboard cruise ships. Cruise ship injuries happen often and you can hold the cruise lines accountable. Cruise ship lines are responsible for the safety and well-being of their passengers aboard during cruises. Louisiana law is clear that cruise ships have a duty to keep their passengers safe and free from injury between the ship and shore. Injuries can occur in port, on the seas, or in tender. We work hard to hold the cruise lines accountable.
Cruise ship injuries can resolve from negligent acts of the cruise line company, slip and fall accidents, sexual assaults, attacks by other guests or crew members, as well as other causes of action. Cruise ship accidents and injury claims involve different aspects of the law including maritime law. The attorneys of Mansfield Melancon are highly-skilled and experienced in these types of claims and injuries.
If you have been injured aboard a cruise ship, it is important that you seek immediate medical care and report the incident. It is important to remember that cruise ship injuries are subject to a one-year time limit. Cruise lines often defend cases based upon a “lack of reported incident.” Also, immediately consult with an experienced passenger injury lawyer who is admitted to practice in Federal Court. We have experiencing fighting the cruise lines and representing people injured on cruise ships.
