A lawyer in Tadley for cruise ship accidents
How lovely would it be to work on a cruise ship? Yes, you are right that it would be, but what if you had an accident that was not your fault and as a result you got injured? Well, then you should make a personal injury claim using an injury lawyer Tadley to help you.
It does not matter that you work on a boat, your employer still has a legal responsibility to protect your health and safety while you are on board. As an employee of the operators, you would be covered by the rules and regulations covering all employers. Like all employees, if you are injured at work through your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
Injuries on a cruise ship
The operators of cruise ships treat health and safety very seriously, as they do not want anyone being hurt while on board their vessels. However, sometimes accidents do happen, some of which may be caused by:
- Food poisoning;
- Unsecured objects hitting people;
- Tripping and falling accidents;
- Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal areas;
- Wet floor surfaces without warning signs;
- Legionnaires’ disease; and
- Cluttered walkways or obstructions.
You may be able to make a personal injury claim if you are enjoying a cruise holiday and you are injured in an accident that was not your fault.
Working or on holiday, an injury lawyer in Tadley will help you with your injury claim
To make a personal injury compensation claim for an accident that happened while holidaying on board a cruise ship is not straightforward. The claim depends on which port the cruise started at, which ports it visited and which port it ended at. The claim would be governed by the rules of either the Athens Convention or the Package Travel Regulations. Accident Advice Helpline would check the routes and work out under which you are covered.
