A paying passenger on a cruise ship suffered an on-board stroke during a cruise. After suit was filed, ARONOVITZ LAW obtained a multi-million-dollar settlement for our client.

ARONOVITZ LAW, on behalf of the passenger, argued that the cruise line failed to care for its passenger knowing that the passenger had a stroke and became an on-board medical emergency. Knowing this, the captain and crew continued the cruise for a day and a half while the patient sat in the ship’s infirmary.

The huge settlement was achieved because the cruise ship captain, crew and ship’s doctor failed to follow their own company policies and procedures:

Helpful Hints:

  • Before your next cruise, make sure you obtain cruise ship medical insurance (not expensive) to pay for a medical air flight evacuation if needed for a medical emergency.
  • Read your ship’s webpage to learn about on-board medical facilities.
  • Be an advocate and demand that the ship’s captain diverts to the closet port to receive proper medical care.

ARONOVITZ LAW won this landmark settlement by knowing the law and advocating for our client.
