Cruise Ship Assault Cases
Legal Guidance from Cruise Ship Injury Lawyers in Miami
It is a sad reality that assault is a common occurrence on
cruise ships. Even though recent improvements have been made to make cruise ships safer
for passengers, cases of sexual assault and other incidents still occur.
Cruise ship companies are responsible for maintaining a safe environment
for their guests. If an operator is aware of a danger but does not address
it, he or she can be held accountable for the damages associated with
an assault that occurs as a result.
Common causes of assault include:
- Broken door locks
- Insufficient lighting
- Incomplete background checks on employees
- Inadequate security
