Up until recently, cruise ship companies have hidden behind a law that said victims of medical malpractice by cruise ship doctors or nurses couldn’t hold the cruise line responsible. Finally, after more than 20 years, a Federal court said, in effect, “That’s ridiculous. Of course you can hold the cruise ship responsible.”
So, anyone who suffers serious injury or death at the hands of a doctor or nurse on a cruise ship now has a way to seek compensation for those injuries. Happy sailing!
