Hold the Cruise Line Accountable for Their Actions · Contact Hoffman Law Firm

At Hoffman Law Firm, we have experience helping cruise ship passengers who have been sexually assaulted. Cruises are filled with women and children seeking to relax and enjoy themselves. Sadly, predatory crew members, ship's doctors or officers and even other passengers can take advantage of the situation and assault a passenger or even someone who might be out on deck late at night alone. If you or a loved one has been sexually assaulted on a cruise ship, we encourage you to contact our office. We will work diligently to ensure you receive the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed.

Screening and Hiring

Because the cruise lines recruit their employees mainly from third-world countries, they have the luxury of picking through hundreds of applications for a handful of open positions. Unfortunately, many cruise lines will focus their searches on young, inexperienced individuals. In other words, they look for inexpensive labor. They do not follow any pre-employment procedures, including background checks. Many times, people are hired with criminal records, past employment troubles or serious violations in their histories. Putting these new, untrained employees in a closed environment with little or no legal repercussions can be devastating to passengers on cruise ships. Contact a lawyer at our office to discuss your situation.
