Help, I Got Injured on a Cruise Ship Gangway – File Your Claim Here
A gangway is a makeshift bridge or similar structure that cruise ship passengers and workers alike use to get on and off the ship. These structures must adhere to certain maritime regulations as well as be inspected on a regular basis to make sure that they are safe for use. In addition, signs must be put up to warn passengers about any inherent dangers or some of the things they should or should not do when getting on a gangway in order to get into the ship. Cruise ship injuries that occur on gangways are usually due to someone else’s negligence, and not a happenstance of freak accident. To this end, it is important to know that you may be able to recover money damages if you got injured due to a defective cruise ship gangway or a negligent act that led to the same. The injuries you sustain may stay with you for a while, or they may be permanent: to this end, it is vital that you reach out to a cruise ship injury lawyer so you can find out what your compensation benefits are after getting injured on a cruise ship, before speaking to anyone else.
