Alleged cruise ship fall sparks premises liability claim

A woman located in a different state has accused the operator of a cruise ship of causing her to slip and fall. The accident reportedly caused her to suffer serious physical and emotional injuries. If these types of accidents, which can easily happen at California businesses, are the result of company owners' carelessness, this is grounds for premises liability lawsuits.

The recent cruise ship accident occurred in the spring of 2017. According to the woman involved in the incident, she slipped and fell while heading toward a casino on the cruise ship. The woman claimed that the area where she fell did not have a slip-resistant coating, so she ended up losing her balance on the water that had accumulated there.

Whiplash injuries often heal quickly but can lead to chronic pain

Whiplash is an injury commonly associated with car crashes, especially rear-end collisions. Although many consider whiplash a minor injury, it can have debilitating symptoms that affect your daily life.

With treatment, most people with whiplash recover in just a few weeks. However, sometimes complications of whiplash can last much longer. When this happens, those debilitating symptoms don't just reduce your ability to enjoy your life. They can also negatively impact your financial situation due to added medical bills and possibly a loss of income.

It is not uncommon to see fellow drivers using their smartphones while driving on the roadways in California. Unfortunately, surfing the World Wide Web, talking and texting on a cell phone while driving are dangerous activities that can easily cause serious accidents. Fortunately, if you have suffered injuries in a car accident due to another person's decision to drive while distracted, you have the right to seek to hold him or her accountable through the civil court system.

Additional examples of driving while distracted, outside of Web surfing, talking and texting, include eating or applying makeup while operating a vehicle. In addition, some motorists hold onto their pets while navigating their cars. Meanwhile, others scroll through their phones or MP3 players to play their favorite tunes.
