Cruise Ship Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents

Slip, trip and fall accidents can happen anywhere – including during your dream cruise vacation. When your slip, trip and fall accident occurs because of the cruise ship’s failure to remedy a dangerous condition, then you can bring a claim against them for compensation for your injuries.

Like any slip, trip and fall injury, when your injury occurs on a cruise ship you must demonstrate that the cruise ship was in some way negligent. According to the law, the owner of a business – such as a cruise ship – has a duty to maintain all publicly accessible areas of the ship in a safe condition for all authorized passengers. In fact, if the owner knows that there is an unsafe condition on the ship, then they also have a duty to warm all authorized passengers. In order to be compensated for your cruise ship slip, trip and fall accident injuries, you must demonstrate that the cruise ship failed in performing one of these duties. To do this, you must show that:

  • The ship owner owed you a duty of care. As a paying customer, you have permission to be on the ship. However, if your injury occurred in clearly unauthorized parts of the ship, there may not be a duty of care.
  • The ship owner failed in performing their duty of care.
  • Because of this failure, you suffered a slip and fall accident.
  • As a result of your slip and fall accident, you sustained injuries.

Slip, trip and fall accident claims are always complex, but even more so when they occur on a cruise ship. This is because cruise ships raise numerous complex legal questions, including:

  • Which country has jurisdiction over your slip, trip and fall accident injury?
  • Whether or not maritime law is applicable?
  • Who is liable for your injuries (the ship owner, the travel agency, the cruise operator)?
  • How long do you have to file your claim for compensation?
