What type of cruise ship accidents can you claim for?

When you travel on a cruise holiday, the last thing you expect is to suffer injuries caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault.

However, accidents can and do happen on board cruise ships. If you have suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault in the last 2 years, you could be entitled to receive compensation.

Here, our holiday claims experts provide advice on the types of accidents on board a cruise ship that you can make a compensation claim for.

Are you entitled to compensation for your accident on a cruise ship?

Suffering injuries caused by an accident on a cruise ship can be an upsetting experience for anyone. When those injuries mean you are unable to enjoy your holiday, it is understandable that you would feel entitled to receive compensation.

Here at YourHolidayClaims, we regularly help holidaymakers receive the compensation they deserve for accidents suffered on board cruise ships all over the world. Some of the most common accidents that we have helped people receive compensation for include.

Slips, trips and falls on board the ship

Some of the most common causes of personal injuries are slips, trips and falls. If a fall has caused you to suffer injuries on board a cruise ship, you could be entitled to receive compensation if the cruise operator was at fault.

For instance, trips caused by uneven flooring, poorly marked obstacles or surfaces not covered by anti-skid material could be deemed to the fault of a cruise operator.

As with any claim, getting as much evidence as possible to support your claim is vital. This can include photos of the area where the accident occurred and witness statements from anyone who saw the accident.

Injuries caused by falling objects

Sea conditions can occasionally put passengers at risk from falling objects which are not adequately secured.

If you have suffered an injury caused by falling objects, you could be entitled to bring a claim for compensation against your cruise operator here in the UK.

Our specialist solicitors can quickly advise whether you could make a successful claim for holiday accident compensation.

Accidents around the swimming pool

Poorly maintained swimming pools are another common cause of injuries on board cruise ships. Uneven, cracked or broken tiles can cause serious injuries including cuts and broken bones.

If pool markings are not clear, this can cause injuries if passengers are not aware of where they can swim safely.

Injuries caused by faulty equipment

These could be any injuries caused by equipment which has been poorly installed or is not fit for purpose.

If you have suffered an injury caused by faulty equipment we would always advise that you take photos of what has caused the accident where possible.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
