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
