Water slides are one of the most popular attractions on a cruise line. However, water park rides can lead to injuries that require medical treatment. When this happens on a cruise ship water slide, it can even lead to a personal injury case.

Cruise ship water slides can be dangerous, leading to serious injuries, but the cruise ship company may be unwilling to pay when you are injured. When this happens, passengers may seek out a cruise ship water slide accident lawyer. The maritime injury attorneys at Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. are here to help you get the compensation you are due when you or a loved one is hurt on a water slide.

Can Cruise Lines Be Held Liable for Water Slide Accidents?

While any water park ride can be dangerous, certain attractions may be especially dangerous. Water slides must be supervised and run by well trained personnel that are always aware of conditions both at the top and bottom of water slides in order to properly maintain space among water slide participants. Also, water slides may have structural integrity issues, people may become stuck, and slip-and-fall accidents often happen in these areas. Likewise, wave pools can be unnecessarily dangerous, especially because poor design and a lack of supervision can cause fatal accidents. When this happens, the cruise line may be held responsible.

When you take a cruise, you have legal rights to basic safety. When a cruise ship water slide is not safe, it can lead to medical expenses that cost you and your family dearly. In these cases, the cruise ship company can be held responsible for your injuries, but take note that the company may try to avoid paying your compensation.

An incident like this may be treated as a risk you took, rather than negligence on their part. Talk to your cruise ship accident attorney if you have experienced an injury or death in the family that could lead to civil lawsuits. Cruise companies can be held liable for many types of accidents, including medical malpractice, Flowmaster accidents, and gangway injuries.

Compensation for Water Slide Accidents on Cruise Ships

Under maritime law, you may be due compensation if you are hurt in the pool areas of a cruise ship. Even seemingly minor injuries can worsen over time and have serious consequences in the future requiring serious medical treatment, surgery, physical therapy, and more. What is your injury worth?

As you enter the court systems with your lawsuit, reach out to your attorney about your accident and what is worth. You may be due compensation for the following damages after a cruise ship injury:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Keep in mind that you may be entitled to compensation for your current and future damages. That means you may receive full compensation for the suffering you have already experienced, as well as compensation for estimated losses, such as future surgeries you know you will need for your particular injuries. Talk to our team about getting the full scope of your compensation.
