    Injury claim in Machrie Bay


    Shipping accident injury claim in Machrie Bay

    Safety is of the utmost importance on all boats and ships, no matter if it is a rowing boat or a cruise liner. Whoever is in charge of the vessel has to ensure the safety of the crew and passengers. If they do not, and you are injured through their fault as a result, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Machrie Bay.

    Cruise ship injury claim in Machrie Bay

    Although cruise ship operators take every precaution, accidents and illness still happen to crew members and passengers. Among these can be:

    • Food poisoning;
    • Legionnaire’s disease;
    • Tripping or falling accidents; and
    • Injuries caused by faulty products.

    If any of these happen to you, you may be able to make an injury claim in Machrie Bay.

    Ferries

    Ferries often travel in choppy seas and need to be very aware of passenger safety. Some of the measures they should take are:

    • Anti-slip floor surfaces;
    • Luggage should be stowed securely;
    • Handrails; and
    • Uncluttered walkways.

    You are usually on a ferry for a comparatively short time, but if you should have an accident and be injured then you may need to make an injury claim in Machrie Bay.

    Canal boats

    There are many people who live on the canals, and generally they do not have a problem. The accidents tend to occur with the holidaymakers who hire them for a couple of weeks, quite often with no experience of a canal boat at all. The operators need to ensure the boats are in a good, safe condition, and that an adequate level of instruction is given before the holidaymaker starts to travel.

    Speed boats and power boats

    Great care needs to be taken when using these boats. It is not only the passengers who are at risk, but other people doing activities such as waterskiing nearby.

    Crew member health and safety

    As a crew member on board any type of ship, your employer has a legal duty to protect your health and safety. If you have an accident through no fault of your own, you will be able to make a personal injury claim in Machrie Bay which will be paid by your boss’s employer’s liability insurance provider.

    Passenger safety

    As a passenger on board ship, if you have an accident and are injured, the rules governing your claim would either come under the Athens Convention or the Package Travel Regulations. This depends on where the ship left port, which destinations it visits and where it goes back to port. It is very involved and complex, so if you want to make a personal injury claim for an injury sustained on board a ship you should approach Accident Advice Helpline and let us plough through the minefield for you.
