    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    The operators of cruise ships treat health and safety issues very seriously. They do not want people being injured or becoming ill while they are on board their ship, and take all the required precautions to try and prevent this from happening. In spite of this, though, sometimes accidents still happen, and if you are the innocent victim of one then our Melton law firm can help you make a claim for compensation.

    Accidents that can happen on board, and why you may need our Melton law firm

    Many different accidents happen on board cruise ships — after all, they are floating holiday camps with hundreds of passengers and crew all milling around together. With the huge numbers of people these enormous ships carry, it is inevitable that sometimes accidents will happen. Common accidents which may happen include:

    • 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; and
    • Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal areas.

    The time limit for claims made for accidents on board ships and planes is reduced from three to two years, which is even more reason to contact our Melton law firm as soon as you can to start your claim.

    Crew accidents

    Accidents involving crew members who are injured through no fault of their own are covered by the employment laws relating to personal injury claims, as they were injured in an accident at work. Their employer, like all employers, has a legal duty to make sure their staff is safe, and a crew member injured in an accident that was not their fault would be entitled to compensation, just like the passengers who find themselves in this situation.

    Making a cruise injury compensation claim

    The rules relating to accidents on-board cruise ships are very complicated, with factors such as where the cruise started and where it finished affecting under which set of rules your claim would come.
