Looking for an injury lawyer in Invergordon
Invergordon is a town and port in Easter Ross, in Ross and Cromarty, Highland, Scotland. Being in the Highlands it is well away from the sea, but if anyone who lives there decides to go on a cruise, along with people from all around the country, they need to be aware of the accidents that can happen and all about an injury lawyer.
If you have been injured you might want to discuss your case with an injury lawyer in Invergordon
The cruise ship is like any other public place, it has to be safe and secure for the public.
Need to use an injury lawyer in Invergordon?
Anyone that has been on a cruise will know that the operators take health and safety matters very seriously, they do not want crew members becoming ill or passengers having accidents – they want happy healthy people on their ship – not having to use an injury lawyer. But as enjoyable as your holiday cruise may be, accidents do happen and the sorts of things that go wrong are:
- Food poisoning
- Legionnaires disease
- Tripping and falling accidents
- Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal areas
- Objects falling and hitting people
If any of these things happen to you on a cruise ship, you would probably need to see the ships doctor and from there another problem could arise if they do not do their job correctly. You could need a medical negligence claim and want to talk to an injury lawyer.
It’s different for crew members
Although the crew members are just as likely to have similar accidents or illnesses as the passengers, their situation is slightly different. They are employees and as such, their employer has a legal responsibility to ensure their health and safety is protected. It would be the operators employers liability insurance that settled your claim.
The complexity of a personal injury compensation claim for passengers on a cruise ship
The first thing that has to be decided is under which rules your claim is covered, it could be either:
- The Athens Convention
- Package travel regulations
Which port your cruise starts and ends at helps decide which scheme you would come under.
