Representing Victims of Cruise Ship Accidents

The cruise ship owner and crew are responsible for providing a safe environment aboard ship, and a duty to ensure the safety of passengers in cruise-sanctioned off-ship activities at ports of call. We can handle cases of slips and falls on wet decks, injuries from crowded conditions, swimming pool accidents and other injuries.

Medical care rendered on cruise ships, if subpar, may result in a medical negligence claim. Cruise line physicians are held to the same high standards as land-based doctors. If there were deviations from standard practices, you may have a claim.

We have successfully handled cruise ship injury and medical negligence claims including:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to properly treat patients
  • Failure to transfer to shore for advanced care
  • Injury in transfer
  • Leaving passengers ashore in the care of unqualified physicians that resulted in injury

If you have suffered an injury while on a cruise ship or if you have prematurely lost a loved one while on vacation due to someone else's negligence, you may be eligible to seek compensation from the liable parties. During your free initial consultation, we can determine if you have an actionable claim for negligence against the cruise line, tour operator, travel agency, air service, or other party.

Were you injured on a tour bus?

Much like cruise ship accidents, other travel-related accidents can cause serious injury. If you or someone you love were injured as a passenger in a tour bus, or if you were involved in a tour bus collision, you must take immediate legal action. Our Denver travel accident lawyers stand ready to pursue your full compensation.

Travel Accidents: Our Success Stories

  • Bus Accident – Bus accidents caused by driver negligence or bus maintenance. After a bus crash in Venice, Italy, we represented 26 plaintiffs, including some who suffered catastrophic injuries or death of a loved one, in a mass tort claim against a Colorado tour operator and a Portuguese motor coach company. This complex case involving Colorado, federal and international law concluded with a significant confidential settlement after five years of litigation.
  • Tourist Destinations & Premises Liability – Injuries suffered during sponsored stops on bus tours. For example, we obtained a substantial settlement for an elderly woman who fell down a rickety staircase at the Coliseum in Rome.

Advocating for Aviation Accident Victims

Airplane and helicopter accidents are commonly caused by pilot error, poor maintenance of the aircraft or defective design. Gerash Steiner, P.C. has prevailed in several of these lawsuits, often aided by a Colorado attorney who is licensed to practice aviation law.
