Description

For decades, passengers who have been injured on cruise ships--like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity or Norwegian--and received negligent medical care from the ship’s doctors have had a difficult if not impossible time holding the cruise lines accountable for the doctors’ errors. Thankfully, this week a United States Appellate Court has issued an opinion that will make it far easier for injured passengers to sue cruise lines for medical malpractice. The case involved an elderly cruise ship passenger who fell and bashed his head while on a cruise on RCCL’s Explorer of the Seas, which was docked at port in Bermuda. The passenger, Pasquale Vaglio, was wheeled back onto the ship, where he sought treatment in the ship’s medical center. The treatment was so negligent that he fell into a coma and died a week later.
