Cruise Ship Coronavirus Infection Attorneys
Passenger Ships Have an Obligation to Provide a Safe Environment
Since the founding of our Law Firm in 1992 we have focused all our efforts on helping the victims of sickness and injuries caused by other’s carelessness, negligence, or malpractice. Because we are located very near 3 of the busiest ports in the world we have always reserved a portion of our practice for people who are harmed while taking a cruise out of the Port of Miami, Port Everglades, or the Port of Palm Beach.
The companies that own and operate cruise ships are among the most profitable in the world, and yet they are constantly found to be liable for passenger injuries and illnesses due to cutting corners on safety.
People falling overboard, slipping on decks, becoming ill from food poisoning, and victims of crime have been reaching out to us for years and we help them despite the fact that cruise lines routinely deny responsibility and resist their obligation to compensate victims.
Now we are experiencing what may be the greatest demonstration of carelessness and negligence by several cruise line corporations by exposing passengers to a potentially lethal illness.
It has become apparent that cruise ship owners and operators were made aware of the Covid-19 virus and yet continued to operate. Hundreds of people became ill on ships, and many have died. Many victims are in the hospital, fighting the virus alone in isolation units, with no health insurance or means to pay their medical bills. This is unacceptable.
We are Here to Help
The Law Firm of Lazarus and Lazarus understands the legal intricacies of dealing with cruise ship companies who try to hide behind international registrations to shield them from the justice that is owed to victims of their carelessness.
If you or someone you know became ill while traveling on a cruise ship in the past few months, we would be happy to arrange a telephone or online consultation. Our communications with victims are free and completely confidential. Please call (954) 356-0006 and we monitor phones 7 days a week.
