The Law Concerning Coronavirus Is Still Evolving
Americans are still grappling with the ramifications of the coronavirus. If you have been personally affected by the disease, you may be wondering who is responsible for you or your loved one’s infection, and what legal options are available.
The legal landscape of pursuing damages for a coronavirus diagnosis is largely without precedent. Still, if you believe that you were exposed to an unreasonable risk of harm by a cruise ship or elsewhere, consider how a lawyer could help you.
Lawsuits Have Already Been Filed
There are lawsuits currently pending against cruise lines whose negligence resulted in the deaths and infections of its passengers. One of those lawsuits is against Princess Cruises, who has gained notoriety for the events aboard the Grand Princess. Because this company did not take measures to promote passenger safety, thousands of people were exposed to the virus firsthand, resulting in more than 100 infections and at least 2 fatalities.
Some of the alleged actions by implicated cruise lines that could ultimately be deemed as negligence include:
- Not heeding to government warnings, which may have ultimately contributed to the large numbers of passengers falling ill
- Failure to make passengers aware of previous cases of the coronavirus that occurred onboard the ship
- Failure to protect passengers by implementing basic sanitary methods, social distancing, or canceling trips altogether
According to Business Insider, 32 cruise ships internationally led to subsequent coronavirus infections, “leaving passengers infected, dead, or stranded.” Depending on the interpretation of maritime law and other statutes, these outcomes could potentially be accounted for in legal judgments or settlements.
If you believe that you or a loved one were exposed to the coronavirus due to the negligence of a cruise line, you may be entitled to compensation for your illness-related losses.
