Cruise & Airline Claims
Cruises, airline, people mover and rideshare situations have caused many passengers to become ill, and worse, after they found themselves dangerously exposed to disease — while effectively trapped on board without recourse, adequate care, or the liberty to make their own decisions. In this era of the fast-sweeping Coronavirus, every minute and measure, managed correctly or negligently, has made the difference between actual life & death. HaymesLaw has handled 36 years of matters involving transportation negligence that resulted in severe injuries and sickness for cruise, airline and other passengers who — when reasonable decisions and proper care were required — the travelers were wrongly left in harm’s way, at the mercy of the carrier.
Alternate avenues are available in law and equity to seek just treatment when, due to the events, negligence and/or bad acts of others, innocent persons and businesses have been adversely and needlessly affected. Some of these directions are well developed, and others would be seeking extraordinary consideration and relief through pioneered theories, developed in conjunction with innovative counsel.
It is clear that, in many instances, carriers have failed to adhere to safety warnings, sailed onward despite contrary advisories, failed to have adequate equipment and trained personnel on-board, and these and other failures of protocols and operations resulted in passengers and employees being needlessly stranded, infected and thereby sustained serious illness and wrongful death.
