Engine fire on a cruise ship

A vacation that started off as exciting for hundreds of people looking forward to seeing Cozumel, ended in relief for those getting off the ship. Perhaps you heard about the cruise ship that recently lost power.

Passengers were faced with conditions that deteriorated after an engine fire. They were no longer able to take a hot shower or have a cold drink. Toilets no longer worked. There was no fresh air to be found in the cabins. People were trading things for food, drink or other essentials. People with balconies offered their space to strangers to share. Strangers became friends.

It was very lucky that no one was injured or got sick. However, less than 24 hours after the ship docked, a lawsuit was filed against the cruise ship company by a passenger who, "feared for her life and worried about falling seriously ill from raw sewage and spoiled food". Her complaint seeks unspecified damages.

Winning a lawsuit can be difficult unless the plaintiff can show actual injury or illness. If you are on a cruise ship and are injured or get sick because of rotten food, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attornesively fight to ensure you are compensated for your damages.
