Miami cruise ship accident lawyer Mike Eidson has represented clients and families involved in a number of cases involving diving injuries.

A few years ago, our firm represented a young man who suffered a paralyzing diving accident. They were drinking at a bon voyage party operated by the cruise ship before leaving port. Alcohol drinking was encouraged by the ship as part of the fun on board to attract customers. After an hour or so, our client walked over and decided to go for a swim. The pool was not covered and there was only about three feet of water in the pool. There were no markers on the pool warning about the danger of diving or other markers warning that it was dangerous or prohibited diving. We argued that it was reasonable for him to believe that it was safe to do that because nothing warned about the depth. We found video advertisements made by the defendant showing diving into the exact pool, practically the exact spot and found design drawings which required no diving signs on the edge of the pool that were never implemented. We also argued the unlimited alcohol provided by the cruise ship encouraged this kind of behavior. We were able to secure a satisfactory settlement for our client.
