Despite the ongoing global pandemic, cruise companies across the world are attempting to get back to business as normal. And with the increased cruising comes additional cases of cruise ship injury.
Aside from the expected cases of outbreak on a cruise ship, presumably, the recent uptick of embarkations has brought a semblance of a return to normal. This means an overabundance of cruise ship injuries and sexual assaults.
Though there have not been any reports of sexual assaults recently, the first post-pandemic report of a cruise ship person overboard came just last week. And as expected, the cruise company attempted to shift blame by prematurely calling the victim’s death a result of suicide.
Cruise companies have long used such tactics in an effort to protect themselves from liability. They attempt to blame victims for their injuries, in hope of liberating the cruise companies themselves from culpability.
As of now, we are all unsure what the future will hold. But one thing for sure is that as long a cruise companies continue to put profits over people, Hickey Law Firm, P.A. will be here to represent victims and help them secure the compensation they deserve.
