If your cruise holiday has been ruined by an accident, the expert holiday claims solicitors at YourHolidayClaims can help you bring a no win no fee claim for compensation right here in the UK.
If your accident took place on the cruise ship or whilst embarking or disembarking the ship your cruise operator may be liable.
In our latest article, our expert holiday accident solicitors take a look at how you can make a claim for a cruise ship accident.
What type of cruise accidents can you claim for?
As long as your claim was caused by a fault on the part of the cruise ship operator, you can bring a claim for compensation.
Some of the most common causes of accidents on board cruise ships are:
- Slips, trips or falls (either on deck or in dining areas)
- Accidents around the cruise ship swimming pool
- Accidents caused by collisions
No matter what the cause of your cruise ship accident, the expert solicitors at YourHolidayClaims can quickly offer advice on whether you may be entitled to make a claim.
What should you do after suffering a cruise ship accident?
The first thing you should always do is seek medical attention. Your cruise ship will have medical staff on board to offer initial treatment and advice.
Once you have received the medical treatment you need, report your accident to staff and ask for a copy of their accident report.
This can be used as evidence of your accident if you wish to pursue a claim on your return home.
How much evidence do you need?
How much evidence you need will depend on the accident that you suffered. However we would recommend that you speak to anyone who witnessed the accident and ask if they would be willing to provide a statement.
If you can, take photos of where the accident occurred and any injuries you have sustained as a result.
You should also keep the receipts of any medical treatment you have paid as you can receive compensation for this when you bring your claim.
