Injured on a Tender Boat?
Learn Your Rights from a Miami Cruise Ship Attorney
Cruise lines have a duty to provide safe transport to and from port. Because local docks are unable
to accommodate large cruise ships, cruise lines often utilize smaller
tender boats to transport passengers. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries
resulting from these tender boats are common in the cruise ship industry, even for
crewmembers. If you or a loved one was harmed on a tender boat, you need the team
at Michael C. Black, P.A. on your side.
Whether the tender boat is owned by the cruise ship or has been employed
by a local company, the responsibility to treat passengers with care remains.
When negligence is demonstrated by anyone involved with the tender boat
and you were injured as a result, you may be able to file a claim.
Tender boat accidents can occur for any reason, including:
- Failure to properly secure the boat to the cruise ship or dock
- Insufficient assistance by cruise line staff members
- Failure to adhere to weather warnings
- Overly crowded loading or debarking area
The injuries sustained from tender boat accidents can be severe, ranging
from broken bones to concussions or
death. This is why it is imperative that you seek legal assistance and our
cruise ship injury lawyer in Miami is capable of helping you pursue deserved compensation.
