You’ve saved and waited for it since last year and, suddenly, you or a loved one is in the emergency room. Amusement park ride, campsite fire, general premises injury, pool injury, water ski or jet ski mishap, ski or snowboarding crash, transportation (airplane, boat, bus or go-kart) accident — the list goes on and on. Just because a company is all about having fun doesn’t mean we relax our guard or that they cease being liable.
Whether the injury results from falling down a ski slope or food poisoning during a cruise, you are owed compensation. The venue operator will try to low-ball you — offering you a free trip on a cruise ship you found was full of bedbugs, or something equally unappealing. Stand your ground, investigate and get full value for your inconvenience. Attorney David Morgan can make that happen.
To name a few: Cruise, bus and airlines are common carriers, the law holds them to high standards of care for the safety of passengers, but you need to show the common carrier was negligent. Many cruise ships are flagged or registered in foreign countries, so international maritime law will apply to your claim. Tickets are contracts (read the fine print on the back) and covered under federal contract law.
This is absolutely not a do-it-yourself situation!
