Picture your dream cruise holiday and it will probably be a combination of sea, sun, sand, exotic locations, beautiful beaches and of course, on-board entertainment. A cruise is a great way to see more of the world whilst enjoying the luxurious facilities on board your liner, but you might be surprised to learn that cruise liner injuries are not uncommon – when you have so many guests on board, there is the potential for accidents to occur at any time.
You could suffer a slip or fall whilst getting on board the ship, or slip on a wet floor with no warning sign displayed. Food poisoning and gastroenteritis is a common complaint on board cruise liners with poor food hygiene, and you could find yourself confined to your cabin, which can seriously spoil your luxury holiday. You could even suffer cruise liner injuries whilst taking part in organised activities on board such as aerobics or bowling. It’s important to establish who is to blame for your accident – perhaps you’re at fault, or maybe somebody else’s negligence has caused your injury?
A personal injury lawyer can help to assess who is to blame and, if necessary, get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Is claiming complicated?
Claiming personal injury compensation doesn’t have to be complicated. In most cases, you won’t need to attend court, so your claim could be processed in full over the phone. If your holiday has been ruined by an accident aboard a cruise liner, you’re entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and financial losses – after all, you saved all year to afford your dream holiday. The key to a successful claim is finding a personal injury lawyer you can trust – one with experience in the industry and the knowledge to ensure they can get you the compensation you deserve.
