About Cruise Ship Passenger Accidents

Cruise Ship Ice Skating Accident

Cruise ship companies have a legal obligation to you, the passenger. In fact, federal maritime requires the company to give aid. However, each claim is different. But what remains the same is every ship must be clear of any slip, fall, and trip dangers. Plus, a ship must commit to the quality maintenance of the equipment aboard. This is reasonable care. Under this reasonable care provision, everyone can except the safe passage to and from the cruise ship. Violations of reasonable care include failure to warn of a hazardous condition, failing in correcting the hazardous condition and exposure of the passengers to an unneeded harm.

Cruise Ship Ice Skating Accident

A Royal Caribbean passenger decided to go ice skating. However, the fun activity turned painful. The staff not only gave him an ice skate with a broken lace that could not be properly tied but also the ice had deep gouges. Both contributed to the man falling and spraining his ankle. He insists that Royal Caribbean failed to warn about the dangers.

Of course, Royal Caribbean said there was no evidence of the hazards. Yet, a jury disagreed. They found the cruise line negligence and show pay 65% of the $667,005.75 in damages. This equaled $433,553.
