Many people like to go on cruises for their holidays, and most of them will have a good time with nothing bad happening to them. But for some, the cruise will turn into a disaster when they are injured in an accident that was not their own fault.
Some of these innocent victims will make a personal injury claim in Clydach, to get compensation for the suffering they have been caused, but of course to do this, the accident must fit the legal rules.
The rules for making a personal injury claim in Clydach because of a cruise ship accident
There are rules for making a personal injury claim in Clydach that apply to all types of personal injury claims, but for some, accidents at sea being an example, the rules are slightly different:
- Someone else must have been to blame for the accident
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- The accident must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have taken place within the last two years
Cruise ship operators take matters relating to the health and safety of their passengers and crew very seriously, and make sure all the necessary measures are in place.
What happens if you are injured on a cruise ship?
All cruise ships have medical staff, and they hold daily surgeries just like the doctors at home do. If you are injured in an accident on board, it will initially be this medical staff that’s treats you, and if they think you need treatment they cannot give, they will arrange for an air ambulance to take you to the nearest land hospital that can help.
The cruise ship operators will be insured against passengers making a personal injury claim in Clydach against them, just as they will be insured in case the injured party is one of the crew.
