Personal injury can happen at any time and in any situation. This statement is especially true in the experience of one injured worker, who was hit by a car while working for Disney Cruise Line. The injured person, who was hit while in a port of call, was treated by the ship's medical care team. They did not correctly diagnose her injuries, which included multiple broken ribs, and told her that she was able to work for her shift as a dining room waiter. Although she eventually received care from another doctor at a later date, when she returned to work she soon had to stop again due to significant nerve damage. The worker sought legal action against Disney Cruise Line and was awarded $4M as a result in a combination of lost wages, pain and suffering, and punishment.
When throwing a party or inviting friends over, most people are concerned with cleaning their homes, preparing the food, and making sure that there's enough to drink. Although these things are important, it is also important to remember that, as hosts, you are responsible for what your guests ingest at your party. Many hosts believe that, if their guests are 21 or older, they should be able to consume as much alcohol as they want without hosts having to monitor them. This is a common misconception. If a party attendee leaves the party drunk and causes injury or accident to themselves or another person, the hosts are partially responsible for the injuries. This is true not only at a home-based party, but also at such public gatherings as graduation parties, wedding receptions, and other celebrations.
