By Injury at Sea

Setting sail on a cruise ship is an exciting experience but, before you leave, it’s crucial to be aware of your legal protections regarding passenger safety. Section §44103 of the U.S. Code ensures that vessel owners or charterers are accountable for covering liabilities arising from accidents resulting in injury or death during trips. Understanding the implications of §44103 is vital for passengers, as it affects your rights and potential recourse in case of mishaps. In this blog post, we will review §44103 and outline how compensation is structured.
