Cruise Injury Claims

When it comes time for a holiday for those who don’t like to fly or drive there is always the option of a nice peaceful cruise. When it comes to cruises you can choose from a whole range of areas to explore all from the comfort of your own cabin. Cruises are designed to be a relaxing experience, although the fact that you are in the middle of the water does mean that if an injury occurs it can end up being quite serious and requiring immediate action.

If you are injured out at sea the costs can be quite high, if you are seriously injured and need to be flown to a nearby hospital then the costs can be even higher. If you are injured while on a cruise through no fault of your own then you may be eligible to claim back compensation to cover a whole range of costs that you have incurred on your trip, these can include medical expenses and any associated costs.

Injuries that can occur on cruise liners?

Although cruise liners are designed to be safe and sturdy, there are a number of injuries that can occur on board as a result of negligence:

  • Drowning/falling overboard – if you fall off the side of the ship into the water you could potentially drown, this could occur through a potential lack of safety railings or warnings
  • Food poisoning – can occur in any of the on board restaurants if the food has not been correctly stored or prepared
  • Trips or falls – can occur if items are left lying around
  • Assault injuries – can occur from conflict with other passengers on board

What should I do if I’m injured?

Being injured on a cruise ship can be an incredibly unpleasant experience, mainly because there may not be an appropriate doctor or physician on board to deal with the extent of your injuries. If this is the case you may need to be airlifted to the nearest hospital which could be several hundred miles away. This trip could be incredibly expensive and this is one of the main reasons why it’s incredibly important that after becoming injured your report your injury straight away.
