The coronavirus began roughly six months ago, all the way across the globe, in China. Officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March of 2020, there is not one individual in the United States that has been left completely unaffected.
For individuals who had cruises planned for their 2020 spring vacations, the start of the coronavirus postponed or even eliminated their plans entirely. Cruise vacations everywhere were canceled due to the fact that they are the perfect breeding ground for COVID-19. Many cruise companies refunded trips, but many individuals were negatively impacted by their entire experience.
How Consulting with a Personal Injury Lawyer Might Help:
Personal injury lawyers offer more in this situation than many realize. Many individuals were emotionally and financially affected by cruise ships shutting down or contracted COVID-19 after being on a cruise ship.
