    Injury Solicitors Honiton say enjoy your cruise, but call us if you are injured while on board through someone else’s fault…

    The operators of cruise ships treat the matter of health and safety of the passengers and crew very seriously.  They do not want people being injured or becoming ill while there are on board their ship and take all the required precautions to avoid it happening.

    In spite of this though, sometimes accident still happen and if you are the innocent victim of one, injury solicitors Honiton can help you make a claim for compensation.

    There are many accidents that can happen on board a ship and illness that you can contract, just a few examples are:

    • Cluttered walkways causing passengers to trip over
    • Unsecure objects hitting people
    • Wet floor surfaces without signs
    • Food poisoning
    • Legionnaires disease
    • Tripping and falling accidents of all sorts
    • Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal area

    Crew can be injured too

    If a crew-member is injured in an accident that was not their fault, it is likely they would make a claim against their employer – the cruise operator.  They are governed by the rules and regulations relating to all employers, they should protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work.

    Seeking help from the on board doctor

    If you are injured, or become ill, while on board, you will need to see the ships doctor and there could be a problem here.  What if they get your treatment wrong in some way and it makes you worse, then you may have a case for a medical negligence claim.

    Making a compensation claim for your cruise injury

    Injuries sustained on cruise ships come within one of two sets of rules.  They are quite complicated to decide which as it depends on where the cruise started, what ports it stopped at and where it ends.  It can also be affected by where and how you booked the cruise to start with.

    The two sets of rules are the Athens Convention or the Package Travel Regulations, and Accident Advice Helpline will make sure your claim is dealt with under the correct ones, that it is handled quickly and efficiently, while giving you as little hassle as possible.
