For any cruise ship holiday, it is important that the cruise ship is well maintained and that measures are taken to ensure that nothing goes wrong. If something were to go wrong when you are stuck on a cruise ship, it could be far more upsetting and stressful than if you are injured on dry land. If you have been injured on a cruise ship holiday, you may be able to use accident lawyers in Alloa to make a claim for compensation. Here are some of the things that you might use accident lawyers in Alloa to claim compensation for, who to make a claim against and how you can make a claim.
What sorts of things can you claim for?
There are lots of different types of accidents which might happen on a cruise ship, particularly a large one with a lot of people and activities on board. However, you won’t be able to make a claim for all accidents. Some of the accidents you may be able to claim for include:
- Slips, trips and falls. These slips must have been caused by negligence though, so from a wet floor rather than the motion of the boat.
- Food poisoning. This is a surprisingly common thing to claim for from a cruise ship as food poisoning can be easily spread if high health and safety standards are not maintained through the boat, meaning that a lot of people can get ill very quickly.
- Sporting injuries. There are usually plenty of sporting activities on board a cruise ship, such as bowling, a gym or swimming pool. Any injuries sustained due to safety standards not being high enough here can offer a case for compensation.
Who can you make a claim against?
If you have been injured on a cruise ship you may not know who you can make your claim against. You can try to make a claim against the holiday operator, the cruise ship owner or management, or staff working on the cruise ship. It entirely depends who you believe has been negligent and caused your injury.
