It doesn’t matter if you are injured on a private dinghy, or fall ill while on a luxurious passenger liner, you have the right to expect that reasonable care has been taken to protect your health and safety. The personal injury solicitors we work with can assist in your claim for fair compensation for an accident at sea.
What are Sea and Cruise Injury Claims?
We have experience of handling a wide variety of claims for cruise injuries and accidents at sea. Some frequent examples are:
- Slips and trips on unsafe surfaces, such as wet decks or loose flooring in your stateroom
- Food poisoning or another illness caused by contaminated food or poor hygiene standards
- Falling while embarking or disembarking due to unsafe or unsuitable steps or gangplank
- Being injured as the result of a collision or capsize
The Compensation Experts have helped both passengers and crew members, the latter of whom are protected under work health and safety legislation. There are several high-profile accidents at sea where victims, or families of victims, have successfully claimed compensation. These include Mr Richards, the widower of Mrs Richards who was dropped into the Arctic Ocean while being transferred to a lifeboat in 2011, and the Concordia cruise disaster in 2012 which sank with 4,252 people on board, 32 of whom died.
A more typical example of compensation claims was a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary with a cruise, only to be struck down by norovirus on their second day. While another party is not always responsible for virus outbreaks, in this instance it was found that hygiene and cleaning procedures were not adequately enforced.
Claiming Compensation for Sea and Cruise Injuries
The first step in claiming compensation for an accident or illness at sea is to talk to an advisor at The Compensation Experts. Even if you have not yet decided whether to pursue a compensation claim we can speak with you about your options and give you the information you need to make the most appropriate choice for you and your family.
We offer our clients a No Win No Fee* agreement, so you do not have to pay any legal fees in advance of receiving your payment, and nothing at all if your claim is not successful. We only work with reputable personal injury lawyers with the experience you need to obtain maximum compensation. They can, for example, advise you whether it is better to raise your claim in the UK, the country where the operator of the cruise liner is based (if not the UK), or the country where you bought your ticket, depending on the circumstances around your claim.
