Beware of these accidents and injuries as a cruise ship worker

Working on a cruise ship provides the opportunity to enjoy a fast-paced environment while seeing the world. This is why so many people seek employment in this industry.

While it's easy to enjoy your job when everything is going as planned, it's not out of the question that you could suffer an injury.

Here are some of the most common injuries suffered by cruise ship workers:

  • Slip and fall: There are many causes of a cruise ship slip-and-fall accidents, ranging from rough water to inclement weather to slick surfaces.
  • Food poisoning: Tainted food has the potential to cause serious illness and even death. As a cruise ship worker, you can usually only eat what's on board, so there's not much you can do to prevent this type of illness outside of keeping your eyes open for potential trouble.
  • Fall from height: Cruise ships have multiple decks, along with stairwells, overlooks and other potentially dangerous areas. If a fall from height occurs, regardless of if you hit the deck below or the water, a serious injury or death is possible.

As a cruise ship worker, there's nothing more important than your safety and well-being. If you suffer any type of injury on the job, stop what you're doing and receive immediate medical attention.

Depending on the injury, you may not be able to continue working. You may also find yourself taking on a variety of expenses, such as medical bills. All this should lead you to learn more about your legal rights for receiving compensation from the negligent party.
