Sexual assaults on board cruise ships or during off-ship excursions are an all-too-common occurrence. Unfortunately, it is also common for cruise ship lines to completely deny responsibility and to even try to blame the victim when confronted by this type of claim.
If you or a family member has had a dream cruise vacation turned into a nightmare because of a sexual assault, don't make the mistake of trusting the cruise ship line to do the right thing. Instead, take action to protect your rights by contacting an attorney who has had proven success with maritime sexual assault claims.
At Seattle Maritime Attorneys, you will find attorneys with more than 50 years of combined maritime law experience and a commitment to providing each person or family we represent with personal service, sound legal counsel and strong legal advocacy.
Assaults by Employees Vs. Non-Employees
If an employee of the cruise line assaulted you, the cruise line itself can be held strictly liable for any physical, emotional or psychological injuries you suffered as a result of the attack.
If another passenger or non-cruise line employee assaulted you, we will have to prove that the cruise line was negligent in some way and that negligence enabled the attack to occur.
In either case, the sooner we can start to investigate, the better our chances will be to recover compensation on your behalf.
