If you are injured while at sea or on board a boat you might be wondering, ‘who do I claim against for maritime injuries?’ The employer is the party responsible for your health and safety while in a maritime environment and any claim for compensation will be made against their insurance. The company has a responsibility to ensure that you are in a safe working environment at all times and that there are no hazards or circumstances that could lead you to being injured. If you have done something that has contributed to your accident your claim is likely to be reduced, but it would still be against the employer, because while at work, the actions of the employee are the responsibility of the company.
Unfortunately, accidents do happen and injuries cannot always be avoided. For this reason Accident Advice Helpline was established back in 2000. We are staffed with experienced personal injury solicitors and operate a system whereby we will not ask you for any money to get your claim started. This makes it possible for you to instigate legal action if you are injured, even if things are tight financially.
Easing financial problems is just one of the reasons why it is important to make a claim if you are entitled to do so. If you are off work while you are recovering from your injury there may not be too much money coming into the home. Compensation can help you to pay bills and keep everything on an even keel. Remember, it is not just you who is affected by an injury; your whole family’s life will be altered, even if only for a short while.
If you have been injured while at sea, we suggest you contact us as soon as possible. When making a claim the sooner you provide us with all the details the sooner you can benefit from the compensation you deserve. If you are unsure of the answer to the question, ‘who do I claim against for maritime injuries?’ just talk to us. We will ascertain who is responsible for the injuries you have suffered and pursue the claim on your behalf. All you need to do is tell us what happened and our personal injury specialist solicitors will determine if your claim is valid and talk you through the process.
Personal injury compensation is designed to help people to manage and to give them justice for the irresponsible actions of others. It is important not to just let the issue go, as the action that led to your accident could lead to a similar accident involving someone else.
We at Accident Advice Helpline will keep you informed every step of the way throughout your claim and will deal with the other party on your behalf. This ensures there will be very little for you to do except confirm that you would like us to represent you. You can then concentrate all your efforts on recovering from your injuries.
