Michael Ehline's insight:

I am heading to DC to lobby congress for a strengthened cruise ship passenger bill of rights.  This is needed because for too long, the cruise industry has gotten away with murder.  Unsuspecting victims have been raped by employees, people have been thrown overboard, children sexually assaulted, etc.  So wish me luck.

After study about the laws and liabilities of going on a cruise ship in my hospitality law class, I feel there is a lot of danger whether it is on the ship or the land of the place you are visiting. But this article really informed me of the many different types of accidents that can occur. One must really take their time when signing any release of liability forms when traveling on a cruise ship.

People involved in birth injuries, medical malpractice injuries, pedestrian accidents, car accident, vehicle accidents, worker’s compensation injuries and dangerous drug-related injuries will need  good Mass. legal representation to file a claim with the insurance company. Massachusetts Personal Injury Lawyers  are instrumental in filing  lawsuits against the person or business at fault for the accident. Massachusetts Personal Injury Attorney, David Slepkow will help  you get the compensation you deserve for all types of accidents including motorcycle accidents, car crash, bicycle accidents, pedestrians mishaps, slip and fall and boat collisions.


If your spouse, child or loved one was killed in a fatal motor vehicle wreck then it is crucial that you retain a Massachusetts wrongful death attorney. A wrongful death case in Mass. must be pursued by the estate of the deceased against a negligent tortfeasor seeking compensation for the death.

What All Cruise Ship Passengers Should Know Before Permission to Board

What All Cruise Ship Passengers Should Know Before Permission to Board | Cruise Ship Disasters and Lawsuits | Scoop.it
Before saying ahoy, permission to come aboard, it is wise to read this and explore the dangers of traveling on Passenger Steamers. Understanding cruise law.
Michael Ehline's insight:

One of the other dangers the ship and passengers can suffer are external, such as attacks by pirates. Armed robbers, using assault rifles and other rocket launchers, using high-speed boats, have been an increasing problem for ocean liners, and even commercial ventures, since approximately 2003. This has resulted in robberies of passengers and even deaths off the coast of Somalia. Even a famous movie with Tom Hanks, was made about one such attack here:

Six Year Old Drowns on Carnival Cruise Says Ehline Law | Cruise Ship Disasters and Lawsuits | Scoop.it
A six year old boy drowned on a Carnival Cruise on Sunday on the Carnival Victory ship. What are the potential consequences? Attorney discussion.
Michael Ehline's insight:

Here, the case will be handled under international admiralty maritime law, treaty, and contract.  Typically one would retain a cruise ship attorney in Florida, when suing Carnival to learn all the nuances and time restrictions.  Suffice it to say, a cruise ship lawsuit is an animal all its own. (read more here.) If you want to sue a cruise line, you have to look at the passage contract, understand that typically a passenger, or the survivor would have no more than six months to send a written claim to the Cruise Line Corporation, listed in the passage contract.

Carlos Gomez's comment, April 26, 2014 1:07 AM
This article really scared me. If a cruise ship did know about these horrible conditions before setting sail and chose to put those passenger's lives in jeopardy, they could really pay the price in court. As a cruise ship you must be able to provide your passengers safety. Not guide them into danger like I read in this article.
