We have learned of an outbreak of legionnaires disease on another American Cruise Line vessel on the Mississippi River per USATODAY.com’s article “American Cruise Lines notifies guests of Legionella bacteria during cruise” 9/29/23.
When individuals are injured or become ill on a boat or ship, they have specific maritime claims that are unique to the law. While passengers on the boat will have what may be typical tort remedies, the working employees on the ship have very different types of claims that fall under the Jones Act and General Maritime Law.
If you or a family member believes they have contracted legionnaires disease they should contact an attorney immediately to protect their rights and understand the special remedies available to you.
