What is medical crew negligence?

Medical crew negligence is, unfortunately, a common problem on cruise ships, but knowing more about what constitutes negligence can help you better understand if you have been the victim of this type of negligence. Several of the most common types of medical crew negligence include the failure to diagnose, a wrong diagnosis, not acquiring informed consent, performing the incorrect medical procedure, or the failure to treat an injured or ill person. Clearly any of these actions (or inactions) could result in the injury or sickness of a cruise ship passenger, and that passenger might have recourse to legal action.

If you are a passenger that has experienced negligence from the medical crew, call Louis A. Vucci, P.A. at (786) 375-0344 for more information.
