Inadequate Cruise Ship Security

Cruise ship accidents occurring as the result of inadequate or negligent security do happen. Case in point, several years ago a crew member of a large cruise corporation became extremely drunk while aboard a cruise ship he was working on. As a result of his inebriation, he was found roaming the halls, knocking on passenger doors and trying to force himself inside several rooms, in one instance forcibly grabbing the passenger’s shoulder. Finally successful, a call to the ship’s security was made. However, as security was busy trying to find a missing child, they were unable to respond to the call.

When unfortunate situations like this happen, you have the right to file a claim of negligent security against the cruise company. A negligent security claim is a form of a personal injury claim, resulting when a person is attacked and injured on the property of another person or company (in this case, the cruise ship). According to the law, a business owner owes a legal responsibility to authorized guests. This responsibility includes protecting them from foreseeable harm, such as criminal activity on their premises. When such harm is foreseeable, the owner must take reasonable and appropriate steps to mitigate these risks. When an injury occurs as a result of the business owner’s failure to make the area safe, they can be held liable for the resulting injuries.

In the case at hand, the cruise ship had the responsibility to protect its passengers from harm. The security team was made aware of the criminal activity occurring on board and the potential danger that it posed. However, due to inadequate security patrols they were unable to respond to all demands. This failure to appropriately staff the security force is a form of negligent security and thus they can be held responsible for the injuries sustained by the passengers.

If you have experience an injury on a cruise ship as the result of inadequate or negligence security, it is important to consult the advice of an experienced cruise ship accident attorney. Since 1977, James Cunningham has been helping cruise ship accident victims receive justice and fair compensation for injuries caused by inadequate and negligent security.
