Need to Take Legal Action Against Royal Caribbean?

Our Miami Cruise Ship Injury Attorneys Can Represent You

Royal Caribbean offers cruises to destinations all around the world, from weekend getaways to extended vacations. The cruise ship line known for providing plenty of entertainment for the voyage, such as swimming pools, movie theaters, and offshore excursions. Many passengers see very little danger in taking part of these activities; at the same time, they may be unaware of the risks involved.

One such incident happened in 2013. A child sustained serious brain damage after crashing into another child while playing a game with crew members in the kid's play zone. Crew members were throwing balls, trying to hit children from the side, while the children were running to dodge the balls. Due to the inadequate medical facilities on the ship, the family and their child were forced to leave the ship and seek treatment elsewhere.

Liability for Cruise Ship Injuries

Using onboard entertainment facilities may seem harmless at first glance, but employees in these areas often lack proper training for emergency situations. While Royal Caribbean does require guests to sign legal waivers of responsibility for participating in onboard entertainment, they can still be held liable for a variety of incidents, especially if actions taken by crew members deviate from the regulations written in the waiver.

These are some examples of possible grounds for liability:

  • Improper maintenance on equipment
  • Misusing products against manufacturer recommendations
  • Refusing to tell passengers of previous incidents
  • Lack of prompt medical response to accidents

Many injury incidents have involved the FlowRider® attraction, a water ride that simulates surfing. Royal Caribbean can still be held liable if someone was injured using this attraction, especially if it can be proven that it was due to lack of standard maintenance or crew member negligence or recklessness. Other legal measures can be taken if the crew fails to recognize any potential dangers or fails to seek assistance.
