Suffered Food Poisoning on a Cruise Ship?
Let our Miami cruise injury ship attorneys help!
Food poisoning occurs more often than many realize on cruise ships. There
is such a variety of food available to passengers on cruise ships that
it can easily become second-nature to accept all meals without questioning
the safety. While it is the responsibility of ship management to maintain
proper safety standards, this does not always happen. Food can become
dangerous if it is not stored at property temperatures or is cooked improperly
due to overloaded staff. A passenger may unknowingly contract a foodborne
illness and also spread contagious illnesses to others more rapidly, suffering
even more severely while trapped on a ship.
Some of the most common types of food poisoning that occur on cruise ships include:
- E. coli
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Legionnaire's disease
Food poisoning can have a number of symptoms, such as cramps, fever, vomiting,
nausea, and diarrhea. The most serious cases can even be life-threatening.
If you have suffered injuries from food poisoning while travelling on
a cruise ship, or even shortly after, we urge you to contact a Miami cruise
