Compensation for Maritime Accidents

Whether you have recently taken a cruise holiday, been out on a boat, or simply have engaged in any water-type activity at sea, you could be at risk of a maritime accident. Being near the sea brings into play a whole range of potential hazards that you don’t have to contend with on land, and this can put you in a potentially dangerous situation if you don’t take the right precautions and safety measures.

Accidents at sea can be incredibly traumatising, and they can also be incredibly expensive, especially if you have to be air lifted to a hospital. As a result, you could be left significantly out of pocket with a number of expensive medical bills to pay. If you find yourself in this situation, then you could consider a personal injury claim. 

What type of Maritime Accident could I be involved in?

There are a number of Maritime Accidents which you could be involved in and could consider making a personal injury claim for, these include:

  • Accidents which happen on a cruise ship
  • Accidents which happen on a public or private boat
  • Accidents which involve water sports at sea
  • Accidents which happen in the navy
  • Accidents caused by a negligent passenger or boat operator.

Who could I claim against for a Maritime Accident?

Depending on the direct circumstances of your accident, there are a number of people who you could claim against when dealing with a maritime accident. If your injuries have been caused while on a cruise ship or private boat then you could consider making a claim against the operator if poor upkeep of the boat or generally hazardous conditions have led to your injuries.

If you have been injured while competing in a water sport or working for the navy then you could consider claiming against another competitor, or perhaps your employer if you feel that they haven’t provided you with the level of safety equipment and training that you required.
