Our law firm handles cases on behalf of injured passengers and crew members against cruise lines. Other law firms handle auto accidents, dog bite cases and whatever may walk in the door. Our firm sues only cruise lines in cases involving serious injuries. That’s all that we do.
One of the cruise lines that we file lawsuits against on a regular basis is Royal Caribbean.
Types of Royal Caribbean Lawsuits: The type of cases we handle against Royal Caribbean can be divided into two general categories – personal injury cases and crime cases.
Crime Lawsuits: Most of the crime cases we have handled over the years involve sexual assaults on Royal Caribbean cruise ships. We have represented women who have been sexually assaulted on cruises by cruise line ship doctors, security guards, waiters, bar tenders and cleaners. The rapes have occurred in the passenger cabins, utility closets, and crew bathrooms.
The crimes are not limited to the cruise ships. Crimes against passengers have occurred during cruise sponsored excursions such as diving and snorkeling trips, sailing and catamaran outings, and in and around bars at the cruise port in the Caribbean and Mexico. We have represented parents whose minor children have been molested by Royal Caribbean crew members and teenagers who have been sexually assaulted by older passengers.
Injury Lawsuits: Passengers on Royal Caribbean cruise ships have been seriously injured in a wide variety of cases. Passengers occasionally slip and fall on slippery decks and floors and sustain serious injuries such as fractured ankles, knees and hips. Injuries on the cruise line’s wide variety of recreational attractions are common, including skating rinks and rock climbing attractions. Injuries on the Royal Caribbean FlowRider surfing simulator are frequent. Royal Caribbean passengers have sustained serious, permanent and debilitating injuries, and have even been killed, on the highly dangerous FlowRider.
The FlowRider is a major money making attraction for Royal Caribbean, but it’s unreasonably dangerous in my opinion.

Types of Clients: We represent cruise ship passengers and crew members. Most of the passengers we represent are from the United States. We have represented clients literally from across the United States.
Our crew member clients, who sustain back, neck and wrist injuries due to the long hours and repetitive nature of their work, are typically from Jamaica, St. Vincent, India, Argentina, Venezuela, Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia, among other countries.
If you or a family member have been seriously injured due to the negligence of Royal Caribbean, consider hiring a law firm which focuses its experience and resources on cruise ship lawsuits – not auto accident or dog bite cases.
