How a Fort Myers Injury Attorney Can Help

The statistics related to injuries on cruise lines are surprising, and most people who plan a cruise have no idea that there is the possibility of injury or even death. In the past several years, there have been 50 people that have gone overboard on cruise lines, on the ships that are monitored for injuries and accidents.

In the close quarters of a cruise ship there is a much higher risk of illness, which can spread quickly. Poorly maintained restrooms and sewage can lead to an outbreak of Norovirus. Acute gastroenteritis affecting passengers on a cruise ship is a serious situation – there have been 95 outbreaks affecting passengers in ships monitored by the CDC in a recent 5 year period. Older passengers, children and those with weakened immune systems are at great risk when suffering from this illness, whether it took place from a failure to maintain the on board environment correctly, sewage being present or other failure. Sexual assaults and other crimes on board are far more common than most travelers are aware of prior to purchasing a cruise ticket.
