Injury claim on Great Cumbrae Island
If you have been injured in an accident within the last three years which was not your fault, or within two years in some cases (such as if the accident occurred on a plane, ship or boat), then you may have grounds to file an injury claim on Great Cumbrae Island. You can also make an injury claim on Great Cumbrae if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or disease within the last three years.
Accidents on boats
If you work on a boat or are travelling on one, you may have an accident. The most common ones are slips, trips and falls, which can occur anywhere on dry land, water or in the air. When travelling on a boat or ship you should always hold the hand rail, and in rough seas you should look out for falling objects from above.
You may slip on a wet deck, but the chances of doing this should be minimal, as decks should be coated with an anti-slip covering. If you do slip on a deck, you may be able to make an injury claim on Great Cumbrae.
You may be involved in an accident on a ferry or a cruise ship, and you could well have grounds to file a personal injury compensation claim against the owner. You have two years in which to file a claim, but you should do so soon after the accident so that you can still remember the details clearly. If the claim case is taken to court, it could take years to settle.
