Have you been hurt whilst on a cruise?
When people hear about injuries occurring on a cruise ship, they often imagine that the injuries will directly be related to being at sea. In fact, this isn’t always true at all. As there are so many activities and events taking place on cruise ships, there are actually a number of ways in which injuries and accidents can occur.
For example, many cruise ships now have both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. If the area surrounding a pool isn’t kept as dry as possible, you may find that you slip or stumble and you could injure yourself as a result.
Similarly, if you take part in one of the activities on board, you may find that you’re hurt as a result. As many people are keen to try out new activities whilst they’re on holiday, inexperience may the cause of the incident but, in some cases, someone or something else may actually be responsible for the harm that you’ve suffered.
As most cruises stop regularly at different destinations, you could even suffer an injury whilst you’re not aboard the ship. If you’re hurt whilst visiting one of the destinations, it could still be possible for you to take action and an injury solicitor in Morley could help you to make a successful claim for compensation.
When should I contact an injury solicitor in Morley?
Although some serious injuries may need that you need to be transported off the ship and taken to your nearest hospital, in most instances, you will be able to receive treatment whilst still on the cruise ship and you may even find that you’re able to stay and enjoy the rest of your holiday as much as possible.
If you are able to make the best of your remaining holiday, you may not want to think about contact an injury solicitor in Morley or a personal injury law firm until you return home. Although some claimants do make a claim with an injury solicitor in Morley soon after the incident, you don’t have to contact an injury solicitor in Morley in order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
In fact, an injury solicitor in Morley can often assist claimants who have suffered injuries within the last three years so in most cases, you’ll have plenty of time to contact a personal injury solicitor in Morley and get your claim started.
