Give us a call on 0800 180 4123 and let us help you too.
Who are you claiming from if you are injured on a cruise?
When you are injured on holiday, your claim will normally be covered by the Package Travel Regulations 1992 act. This act regulates the liability of the holiday organiser for any personal injury. If you bought your cruise in the United Kingdom, your injury could be covered under this law. However, cruise liners operate in international waters and this can complicate matters.
Cruise liners will operate within the jurisdiction of several countries while on a voyage. For this reason, the international Athens convention deals with most compensation claims brought by cruise ship passengers and covers many countries, including the United Kingdom.
Making a compensation claim can seem daunting and complicated under the best of circumstances. Unfortunately, injuries sustained while on cruise add another dimension to the claims process. This is why it is important to select the best solicitor to handle your claim. You will need to find someone who is experienced in handling cases of this nature and understands the specialist approach needed to succeed with a compensation claim. Someone who knows exactly whom to claim from and how to get you the best settlement. Call Accident Advice Helpline and let us refer you to the right lawyer.
