Accidents on boats and ships
If you have been involved in an accident on board a boat or ship, and you have been injured as a result, then you might be able to make a compensation claim in Westgate-on-sea.
Specific examples of the sort of accidents that can lead to injuries on board a seafaring vessel, which might entitle you to make a compensation claim in Westgate-on-sea are:
You could be in one of the activity areas of a cruise ship and you might slip on a pool of water that has not been properly cleaned up. Because this should have been dealt with properly, or at least signed to indicate a potential hazard, if you have fallen and injured yourself as the result of this form of accident then you might be entitled to financial compensation.
You could be walking along the deck of a cruise ship and trip over a hazard that has been left lying around by either a member of the public or a member of staff on board. The people responsible for the maintenance of the vessel you are on have a duty of care to ensure that all people on board are kept safe at all times. This means ensuring that nothing is left lying around that could present a hazard to you.
Perhaps you are on your way back to your cabin and have to navigate the stairs. If they are not properly maintained or suitably well-lit then there is a chance you might stumble and ultimately fall. This could lead to any number of injuries which require attention and a potentially significant amount of time to recover from.
