    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can I claim for maritime injuries?


    “Can I claim for maritime injuries?” The simple answer to this question is yes, you can.

    Accidents that occur through no fault of your own and which result in an injury mean that you can make a claim for personal injury compensation. The type of injury that you can claim for varies widely, especially in a maritime environment. Any type of injury, particularly those that leave you having to take time off work, will be grounds for claiming compensation. At sea, there are countless hazards to be aware of, but sometimes the actions of others mean that an incident is unavoidable and this can lead to all manner of injuries.

    Accident Advice Helpline was established 13 years ago with the aim of providing quality legal advice and services to those who have been injured through no fault of their own. By offering a service that does not require an up-front payment, expert legal representation has become available to everyone who has been injured. It is no longer necessary to have lots of money in the bank in order to be able to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.

    It is important to give us a call as soon as possible after the accident has occurred. By doing so we can ensure that your claim is being processed efficiently and you will receive your compensation as soon as possible. Injuries can lead to time off work, long recovery periods and in extreme cases, a total change of lifestyle. Compensation will help you get through any sticky financial situations as a result of being off work; after all, the bills will not stop coming through the door.

    When asking, “can I claim for maritime injuries?” you might also be wondering where the compensation money comes from. Companies need to have insurance in place to protect their employees and members of the public and the claim is made against this policy. Individuals will not be out of pocket as the result of you making a claim, provided this insurance is in place.
