300 Sick on Cruise Ship

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 1-Jan-2011

Reports say that passengers on the cruise ship Norwegian Jade, a part of the Norwegian Cruise Lines fleet, became ill on a sailing early this year. Passengers reported several shipmates were sickened and the liner was evidently concerned enough to change all buffet areas from self-serve to cafeteria-style. The system reportedly remained in place for the entire cruise.

Passengers also reportedly noticed new NCL sanitizing systems, including hand sanitizers in elevators and antibacterial hand spray at the entrance to each restaurant. Brochures about trips, which might normally be available for passenger reading, were reportedly eliminated.

The cruise ended in Barcelona, at which time continuing passengers were reportedly obliged to disembark for several hours while entire ship was being sanitized.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
