If you are a cruise ship worker, then you know that life is not always as glamorous as it appeared on the popular 1970's TV program The Love Boat. Romance can be difficult to fit into a long work day that often occurs in difficult conditions and can result in injuries.
Common Reasons for Cruise Ship Crew Member Injuries
It can be difficult for a cruise worker to prevent his or her own injury because so much of the potential for harm is controlled by the cruise ship employer. Common cruise ship crew injuries occur because of:
- Inadequate staffing
- Broken or missing equipment
- Weather conditions
- Negligence of other crew members or a cruise ship employer
If you have been hurt in an accident for any of the above reasons then you may be entitled to damages. However, how you were hurt impacts what kind of damages you can recover. Maritime law is complicated and different laws apply to different situations.
If you are a cruise ship worker, injuries can be painful and expensive. Contact a New Jersey and New York cruise ship employee lawyer for more information about your potential recovery.
