Cruise Ship Accidents
Wet surfaces can lead to serious injury, requiring long-term rehabilitation. Common causes for such accidents are excess liquid left behind by cleaners or unmaintained drains leaking on to floor surfaces.
Exposed cables, loose tiles or misplaced items are all common causes for tripping. The injuries sustained can be devastating and can continue to affect the person involved long after their cruise has finished.
Our panel of expert travel lawyers have dealt with poolside accidents, accidents in restaurants, falling objects and accidents in hotel rooms. Accidents are often very preventable. Your tour operator has the obligation to make sure your stay is safe. If you have been injured, you may be able to claim.
The Regulations of a Cruise Ship Accident Claim
Cruise holidays purchased in the UK nearly all are booked and covered by either the Package Travel Regulations 1992 or the Athens Convention. These laws are there and mean that although you may have travelled to multiple destinations with different laws in each whilst on your cruise; you are over all covered by UK law and regulations.
This requires that Cruise Ship owner and your tour operator both have a duty of care towards anyone travelling on the vessel. If you have an accident as a result of poor maintenance or lack of care, the tour operator or cruise ship owner is often liable to pay your compensation.
