Pool and Water Slide Injuries
Accidents occurring in or around swimming pools and water slides are not uncommon, aboard cruise ships as well as on land. The difference is that if you are injured on a cruise ship, your legal rights may be different than if you were injured in a similar accident on land. You should also know that your legal claims will most likely be governed by an area of the law that only a relatively small number of attorneys have experience with.
At Seattle Maritime Attorneys, you can find the experienced legal representation you need to obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses. Our lawyers, John Merriam and Gordon Webb, offer more than 50 years of combined experience and dedication to this area of the law. Together, they have helped countless numbers of cruise ship passengers throughout the United States.

Cruise Line Negligence and Maritime Products Liability
Generally speaking, there are two areas of the law associated with cruise injury claims and swimming pool or water slide accidents.
The first is based on the negligence of the cruise line or its employees. Examples of this type of negligence include drowning accidents resulting from poor supervision or security, accidents resulting from poor maintenance of the pool or water slide equipment and accidents resulting from a failure to provide safe conditions in or around the immediate area.
The second area involves maritime products liability law, claims which are based on negligence by the manufacturers of defective or unreasonably dangerous pool equipment, pool drains, wave pools, hot tubs and water slides.
In either case, the experience of your lawyer really does make a difference.
