What Is My Cruise Ship Sexual Assault Case Worth?

What Is My Cruise Ship Sexual Assault Case Worth - compensation lawyer attorney sue liability

Going on a cruise can sound like the ideal vacation. You get to travel to various places and see the world. But you have countless entertainment options, fun activities, dining choices, and comfortable accommodations while in transit from one fun place to the next. There are also no issues with jetlag, being stuck in a tiny, cramped seat for hours, or issues with driving while under the influence. You are a passenger, believing everyone is there to help you enjoy your vacation and time aboard the cruise ship. However, that is not always the case.

Sadly, there can be people booking a cruise looking for nothing more than to take advantage of other passengers or who cannot be trusted to act responsibly when they have been enjoying a few adult beverages. There might even be employees working on the ship who have no business being in such an environment due to past criminal history or issues with assault or abuse. Regardless of the reasons or excuses, no passenger should ever be subjected to sexual assault while on a cruise ship. And when that happens, the victim has the right to seek compensation and justice for the harm and losses they sustained.

What Complicates Sexual Assault On A Cruise Ship Lawsuits

In many cases of sexual assault on a cruise ship, the violations occur when you are out to sea and not under the typical jurisdiction of U.S. laws. However, if your cruise originated in the United States, you will have a better opportunity to hold the cruise line accountable for the sexual assault you suffered.

Understanding Who Is To Blame For Your Cruise Ship Sexual Assault

When you think about someone being sexually assaulted, you typically think that the person committing these unforgivable violations would be the one who is getting sued. However, in some cases, especially on a cruise ship, there can be contributing factors that could mean you are actually suing the cruise line. In general, the list of people and entities you might sue for your sexual assault aboard a cruise ship includes:

  • The other passenger who assaulted you
  • The cruise ship employee who sexually assaulted you
  • The cruise line if the person who sexually assaulted you was an employee or if the staff was negligent in some manner and that contributed to your sexual assault
When Is A Cruise Line Typically Liable For Your Sexual Assault?

Even if another passenger sexually assaulted you, there are times when the cruise line failed to take the proper action or precautions to prevent the events that led to your sexual assault. For example, the staff failed to take action when another passenger acted aggressively or inappropriately; they were clearly drunk or under the influence or were not respecting the personal space of other passengers. It is also possible that the cruise line could be responsible if their staff were overserving the person who sexually assaulted you.

Finally, there could be instances where the staff failed to properly lock doors or provide adequate security and safety measures on the ship. If someone was able to force open your cabin door or attack you in a dark, unattended, or unmonitored area of the ship, that negligence on the part of the staff could allow you to sue the cruise line for the harm and damages you suffered.

What To Do Before Leaving The Cruise Ship

It is vital to understand that once you leave the cruise ship, you might have no way to contact the other passengers and crew who witnessed the sexual assault you suffered or the previous behavior of the person who sexually assaulted you. So, as difficult as it might be, you must gather contact information of potential witnesses or those who could provide information about the person or event that occurred. Also, try to get copies of videos or photos that could include the person who sexually assaulted you.

If there were areas of the ship that were being recorded via security cameras, request copies of the footage if they contain images of the person who sexually assaulted you and any of their previous inappropriate behavior. In addition, get copies of your medical records from the ship and contact information from the medical staff, security personnel, and other ship staff who could be used as witnesses regarding the sexual assault or the actions of the person who assaulted you before that incident. This information will benefit the legal team at DTLA Law Group as they begin to build your lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have To File My Cruise Ship Sexual Assault Lawsuit?

The questions regarding the Statute of Limitations and the time provided to file your lawsuit for sexual assault are made exponentially more complex because the sexual assault occurred at sea. The question of Maritime Law or U.S. law covering the incident can be challenging to sort out. However, the legal team at DTLA Law Group includes experts in sexual assault cases and Maritime Law to ensure that all of your questions can be thoroughly answered when you join our staff for a free consultation.

If the case falls under Maritime Law, you will likely have three years to file your claim. But many nuisances can significantly reduce that time. So, contacting DTLA Law Group immediately after returning from your cruise is best. In some instances, the cruise line requires notice of the incident in writing within six months of the occurrence. Rest assured, after meeting with the DTLA Law Group team and sharing the facts of your cruise ship sexual assault, our staff will answer all your questions and address any concerns that you have about timelines and the time needed to complete your lawsuit.

  • Any lost income if your injuries prevent you from doing the tasks involved in your normal job or if you miss work to attend medical appointments related to the injuries sustained in the sexual assault
