Endured an injury while on holiday?
Lots of UK residents love to get away from it all and holiday on a cruise, or go boating while abroad. However, although cruise and ferry operators take every safety precaution within their ability, accidents and illnesses still occur when holiday makers are at sea. For an unfortunate select few, the happy and joyful experience of a cruise holiday can be ruined due to an injury.
Obstructed walkways or hallways, wet floors, food poisoning, faulty product accidents and slips or trips are all forms of accidents that you could claim compensation for, if it was not your fault. If you have been involved in an accident which has caused you an injury while on a boat, solicitors in Penryn may be able to help you win compensation.
It’s not only holidaymakers that can claim for compensation through solicitors in Penryn if they have been involved in an accident. Crew members and on board staff should be covered by their employer’s insurance should any accidents occur. So if you are a holidaymaker, or a member of staff, you may want to consider contacting solicitors in Penryn.
Making a claim with solicitors in Penryn
Even if your injuries were sustained out with the UK, you can still make a claim if you fit the three requirements of evidence – prove it was someone else’s fault, prove it took place within the past 3 years’ and prove you obtained medical treatment for your injuries.
If you fit this criteria, there’s a good chance that you’ll be eligible to make a compensation claim. Of course, you may need to present further evidence to prove that someone else was responsible for your injuries or illness.
If anyone else witnessed the incident, for example, they could provide a statement which could help to prove that you weren’t at fault. In other instances, accident or police reports can be used to help determine exactly what happened and who is liable.
