What are some ways cruise ship employees can get injured?

Previously, we discussed injuries that cruise ship passengers may suffer during their voyage. This does not mean that crew members are impervious to injuries. In fact, cruise line employees in California and elsewhere are vulnerable to the same mishaps that passengers are subjected to. As you may be aware, you and your fellow crew members may also be in accidents that are not as common among passengers, due to your line of work.

Why is commercial fishing so dangerous?

Fishing for fun is typically relaxing, safe and uneventful. Many people enjoy it as a way to pass the time on a lazy Saturday afternoon. They take their children with them, kick back, relax and see if anything bites.

Who is responsible if you get injured on a cruise ship?

When you book a cruise, you are looking forward to the vacation of a lifetime. You are probably not anticipating an injury or illness, but people regularly get injured during cruises, either on the ship or at a port of call. Many passenger ships dock along the California coastline, but their voyages frequently take them into international waters, which may leave you wondering where the liability resides if you seek medical attention after a cruise injury.
