    Injury solicitors in Dingwall


    Dingwall is a town in the Highland council area of Scotland. It was formerly an east-coast harbour but now lies inland. Dingwall Castle was once the biggest castle north of Stirling. On the town’s present-day outskirts lies Tulloch Castle, parts of which may date back to the 12th-century building.

    In the days when Dingwall was a harbour, there were no doubt sometimes accidents at sea in the area, just as accidents happen at sea now.  They are not much different to accidents on land and if you are injured in one that was not your fault you might want to talk to injury solicitors in Dingwall about making a personal injury claim.

    Using the help of injury solicitors in Dingwall if you have an accident at sea

    Cruise ship operators take health and safety matters very seriously, they do not want crewmembers becoming ill or passengers having accidents.  They want everyone on board to be happy and healthy while they are at sea.  But not matter what precautions they take, sometimes things go wrong and accidents and illnesses occur, through no fault of the victims.  In this situation, the injured person may well want to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors in Dingwall.

    The things that can happen on a cruise ship holiday

    There are a number of ways that accidents can happen when you are on a cruise, just some of them being:

    • Slipping on wet unmarked floors
    • Falling down stairs because of a lack of or broken handrails
    • Food poisoning
    • Legionnaires disease
    • Tripping over an obstruction in a walkway
    • Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal areas
    • Objects falling and hitting people

    You may need medical attention for these injuries, lets just hope the doctor doesn’t make a mistake as well.

    The employees

    Crewmembers are employees so if they are involved in an accident that was not their fault, their personal injury claim would be made under employment laws which say all employers should protect the health and safety of employees while they are at work.

    Making a claim for your accident at sea

    There are two sets of rules your accident at sea claim could come under:

    • The Athens Convention
    • Package travel regulations

    Which port your cruise starts and ends at helps decide which scheme you would come under. The whole process if very complicated and you should let Accident Advice Helpline make the decisions for you.  We will make sure we get it right and claim under the correct rules and regulations.
