Are you looking to claim injured at sea compensation?
You may be eligible to make an injured at sea compensation claim if you’ve been hurt in an accident through no fault of your own.
You may have been injured while working at sea, in which case you should also take a look at our work injury claim page. If you’ve been injured on holiday, our page on holiday accident claims will be helpful, and if your injury came about during a sports activity, you’ll find more information on our page devoted to sporting accidents.
Injured at sea compensation
Sea injury compensation claims are typically made when the accident wasn’t your fault. Most successful personal injury compensation claims are made when another person or organisation is responsible.
Sea injury claim
It’s imperative that you collect as much evidence as possible about the accident, ideally showing that you were not at fault. If you’ve hired a faulty jet ski, for example, take photos of any visible defects or damage. If another person injured you, get their details and those of any witnesses.
If you’ve hurt yourself as a result of faulty equipment or incorrect instruction, make sure to find out exactly who owns the equipment and exactly who is responsible for your safety.
Most important of all, be sure to get immediate medical attention, even if you don’t feel like you’re really hurt. This is particularly essential if you’ve suffered a blow to the head. Also, be sure to keep a record of any medical help you have received and any expenses you have incurred.
