The people who run cruise ships take the matter of health and safety when it comes to their passengers and crew very seriously. They know that if people on board their cruise end up getting injured or poorly they could have a claim for compensation taken against them, so they make sure they take every necessary precaution to avoid anything happening.
But there is no way to stop accidents from happening completely, they will still happen and if you have been an innocent victim of one then a lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline will be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Accidents do happen on board a ship
There are so many different accidents and illnesses that could happen on board a cruise line no matter how careful you are, just a few examples are:
- Cluttered walkways causing passengers to trip over
- Unsecured 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
If your have been injured in an accident that was no way your fault on board a cruise line, you have 2 years to make a compensation claim for it before the deadline runs out. So do not delay in contacting a lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline to get the process for your compensation claim started.
Crew can be injured, not just passengers
If one of the crew members on board is injured in an accident that is in no way their fault, they are eligible to claim compensation as well, it is not just passengers that can claim on their injuries. The cruise operator, their employer is governed by the laws and regulations that all employers have to follow. They have to protect and preserve the health and safety of all of their employees while they are on board the cruise line.
Seeking help from the on board doctor
If you become injured or fall sick while on board, the first thing you will probably do is seek out the on board doctor and something could happen there. If the doctor or medical professional gets your treatment wrong it could end up with you becoming worse than your were at the start. If this has happened then you have a case for a medical negligence compensation claim.
