Filing a Cruise Ship Workplace Employee Injury Lawsuit

Workers compensation claim attorney - cruise ship accidents and injuriesThe vast majority of workers compensation lawsuits based on workplace accidents are based on the legal theory of negligence. Negligence requires the proving of several elements. A basic outline of the elements in a negligence based injury lawsuit is provided below.
  • The at fault party had a duty to act in a reasonable manner and refrain from actions or inactions likely to result in significant danger to others.
  • The liable party breached his duty of care – example of a breach of duty with respect to cruise ship incidents include the failure to clean wet and slippery surfaces, failure to fix appliances and electrical equipment resulting in electrocutions and burn injuries.
  • The breach of the duty was the cause of the accident.
  • The accident resulting in injury, or some kind of harm, to the plaintiff.

Jones Act and the Right of Employees to File Personal Injury Claim against Employers

Under the Jones Acts any seamen who suffers injury in the course of employment has the right to file a personal injury cause of action as well and a worker’s compensation claim against their employers. Jones Act Claims, 905(b) states that Seaman’s remedies include, “Maintenance, Cure and Unearned Wages: Every seaman who becomes ill or injured during his employment, regardless of fault of the owner or operator of a vessel is entitled to maintenance, cure and unearned wages as a matter of right.” Thus employees have the right to receive workers compensation benefits and file a Tort claim for the same accident and subsequent injuries.
