Cruise ships hold the alluring promise of vacation, tropical weather, exquisite locales, delicious meals, and much more. While millions of people enjoy fun trips to Alaska, the Bahamas, Cancun, and countless other destinations every year via cruise ships, not all trips end with the same excitement that they began with. Cruise ship accidents can be caused by a number of different issues, but most often, they result in serious damages and injuries.
Handling Injuries Incurred on Cruise Ships
Most cruise ship accidents are much more subtle, involving seemingly minor injuries rather than sinking vessels. All the same, these injuries can carry with them significant damages.
Clark Fountain represents clients who suffered the following on a cruise ship:
- Slip and fall injuries
- Injuries due to falling objects
- Gastrointestinal illnesses (norovirus)
- Sexual assault or any type of physical attack
- Injuries due to unmaintained areas
- Defective stair rails or escalators
- Any other type of accident

Liable Parties in Cruise Ship Accidents
Determining who is responsible for a cruise ship accident can be difficult. There may be a number of different parties partially liable, but this depends on the specific circumstances of your case. For example, the designers or creators of the ship may be held responsible if faulty or defective design led to a fall or other type of injury.
In other cases, the company itself may be held responsible if the ship wasn’t properly maintained, such as slippery surfaces allowed to exist around eating areas or health issues not handled correctly, causing illness to spread. Even excursion companies may be responsible if they caused an accident through any type of negligence or carelessness.
Overall, cruise lines can be held responsible for the actions of their employees and agents in most cases. They are also the ones responsible for keeping their vessels free of any hazardous conditions.
