There are big ferries and little ferries, ones that cross rivers and some that travel the sea, and they all have the same responsibilities towards their passengers, to make sure they do not have an accident that was not their fault.
Most ferry operators take this duty very seriously and do all they can to make sure people are safe. Apart from not wanting it on their conscious that someone has been injured on their vessel, they also do not want to have to face a personal injury claim in Gedling.
The sorts of accidents that can result in a personal injury claim in Gedling
There are many accidents that can happen on ferries, such as:
- Spillages on decks
- Obstacles in walkways
- Badly stacked luggage
- Faulty furniture, particularly in public areas
- Food poisoning from food served on board
Rides on ferries are usually fairly short compared to other boat journeys but that does not stop passengers being injured on them.
The difference for accidents on ferries at sea
There are rules in place that allow you to make a personal injury claim:
- The accident has to be the fault of someone else
- You have to have been injured in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed the treatment of a medical professional
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
These rules are set in stone apart from the time limit for which there are a few variations. One of them is if you sustain injuries at sea, or on a plane, the time limit is reduced to two years after the date of the accident.
Listen to Esther when you want to make a personal injury claim in Gedling
The innocent victims of any type of accident should listen to Esther Rantzen when they want to make a personal injury claim in Gedling or anywhere else in the UK.
Out of all the personal injury claim companies, she chose to endorse and recommend Accident Advice Helpline, as after looking at us very closely, she knows we will look after our claimants, and give them an open and honest service that always puts their needs first.
Esther has worked hard to raise the awareness of victims to their rights to compensation, but still only 3 out of 10 make a claim. Many of them shy away because of the costs they fear will be involved. But this is one of the things Esther likes about us, we never ask a victim to pay any money to start their claim and we never ask them for any money if their claim is lost. We use the no win no fee agreement, which means they take no financial risk at all.
