Injured on Crown Princess?
Call on our Miami cruise ship injury lawyer!
Crown Princess, one of the
cruise ships that sail under the Princess Cruise line, has garnered attention for numerous
incidents that have caused illness or serious injury to passengers aboard.
One notorious incident occurred around a month after its maiden voyage
in the summer of 2006. Crew members reportedly had trouble controlling
the ship as it began making unexpected, rolling motions. Passengers were
violently knocked down or struck by falling debris, sustaining injuries,
such as bruises, abrasions, and even fractures.
While Princess Cruises acknowledged this incident by offering refunds to
passengers, they attributed the incident to crew member error, failing
to take true responsibility for the injuries. In many cases, cruise ship
lines will offer passengers perks to distract them from the fact that
they can pursue much greater compensation for their serious injuries and pain.

Vigorously Pursuing Your Claim
Another, more recent, incident on Crown Princess occurred in 2014. There
was an outbreak of norovirus, which affected over 170 people. This is
a stomach illness that is highly contagious and commonly occurs on cruise
ships, where hundreds of people are housed in a concentrated area. Cruise
ship companies should acknowledge any potential dangers such as this,
but when they fail to take precautionary measures, the health and safety
of passengers are at risk, and the cruise ship could be held liable for
any errors committed.
