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.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.

"Kept updated regularly "

Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case. I was kept updated regularly on all aspects and developments and given sound advice regarding my claim. I particularly liked using the App on my mobile which was full of useful information. Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.
