Viking Cruises is one of the most well-known cruise lines across the globe. Unfortunately, like many other cruise lines, they frequently have wrongful death and personal injury claims brought against them when cruise ship passengers and injury victims discover the cruise line’s negligent actions contributed to their injuries. However, because they are so well-versed in litigation, it is imperative that you are a powerful legal advocate ready to stand up against them.
To make matters worse, if you get hurt on a Viking cruise, you most likely have to file your case in Switzerland pursuant to the passenger ticket contract. This makes any case against Viking far more difficult than a case against say Royal Caribbean, Carnival, or NCL because those cases have to be filed in Miami, Florida.
Having said that, if you or a loved one is critically or fatally injured aboard a Viking cruise ship, do not let the liable party get away with it. You can take action and ensure liable parties are held accountable for their negligence.
