A Long Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer Can Now Go After Cruise Ships

Before, when a person’s condition becomes complicated due to an inexpert attending physician and the incident happened at a cruise ship, chances are that any medical malpractice claims will be ignored. Cruise ships back then had enjoyed immunity from medical malpractice lawsuits, meaning they cannot be held responsible for the worsening of the condition of the person who got injured or got ill inside the ship, no matter how assertive your Long Island medical malpractice lawyer is.

One such instance of malpractice claims on a cruise ship getting denied was in 1988, when a couple named Florence and James Barbetta sought for claims against the S.S.Bermuda Star. According to the complaint, Mrs. Barbetta and her husband went aboard the ship on July 21, 1986 for a cruise around Mexico.
