Accidents On Board

Accidents on board a cruise ship

Holidaying on a cruise ship provides an opportunity for holidaymakers to travel to several different countries in a short space of time. Unfortunately, due to the amount of people in such a confined space, accidents and injuries can occur whilst onboard the ship.

If you have been injured during your time on a cruise liner, contact Aequitas Legal today to speak to one of our solicitors about making a claim for compensation. You can get in touch by either calling us on 0161 358 0800 or by filling in our contact form.

Causes of cruise ship injuries

The company that owns, and usually runs, the cruise ship has a duty of care to any passengers on board. This means they have to ensure passengers are travelling in safe sea conditions and that the journey runs smoothly.

Accidents that cause injury may be caused by:

  • Poorly maintained furniture and fittings
  • Faulty equipment or machinery
  • Poor hygiene conditions
  • Damaged flooring
  • Defective hand and guard rails
  • Falling items

Additionally, holidaymakers may develop food poisoning whilst on board a cruise ship, as a result of poor food preparation, unhygienic conditions or inadequate storage procedures, for example.

How Aequitas Legal can help

We understand that accidents on board a cruise ship may not just have physical effects, but can also affect you psychologically. We work with a large number of specialist medical experts and do our best to ensure a speedy recovery for you.

Our team of friendly and knowledgeable solicitors will guide you through the claims process, ensuring you get the compensation you deserve if injury impacts your holiday.

"A star in the making"

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

" ‘in-Case’ app makes things so simple"

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.

"Amazing determination"

I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.

"Professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply"

Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
