The last thing you want ruining your cruise vacation is an injury of any kind, but data indicates that the risks of head trauma could follow you on board. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are more than 223,000 hospitalizations for traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year. Plus, more than 60,600 people are killed because of serious head injuries annually, at a rate of around 165 per day. When you consider the fact that up to 9 million people board cruises out of Florida yearly, you can see that you are not entirely safe even while on vacation.
If you or a loved one sustained TBI or other head injuries in a cruise, you may be eligible for compensation due to negligence by the operator. A Miami cruise ship accident lawyer can assist with your remedies, but there are a few unique concerns to note.
