Help Make Cruises Safer by Bringing Their Problems into the Light
The vast majority of people who decide to go on a cruise have a great time and do not experience any problems whatsoever. The cruise lines would have you believe that this is true for absolutely everyone, but it just is not so. As with any large operation catering to all kinds of people, mistakes happen, individuals sometimes act in a negligent manner, and problems do occur.
If you have been paying attention to the news in recent years, you already know this. Norovirus outbreaks, drownings, and even assaults have given cruise lines a black eye, and they are working hard to heal and put the past behind them. But here is the dirty little secret of the cruise industry: for every accident, injury, illness, or criminal act that you hear about, there are many more that are never released to the public. In fact, cruise lines have only been required by law to publicize the crimes committed on their ships since December of 2014.
Since there is such a strong desire by the cruise industry to protect their brand and sweep negative experiences under the rug, it is vital that you work with a knowledgeable and experienced cruise accident attorney if you suffer an accident, injury, or illness that can be directly attributed to the cruise line’s negligence.
