Port Accident

Cruise port accidents and injuries

Boarding the ship is an exciting time for anyone embarking on a cruise holiday, and the same can be said when the ship is docked at port and you’re ready to explore a new location. However, it is not unknown for holidaymakers to suffer accidents at the port, and these are often due to a defective gangway or a collision.

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an accident that was caused in a port, contact our specialist travel claim solicitors today to find out if you are entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering caused. Call us now on 0161 358 0800 , or complete our online form, letting us know how you were injured.

Injuries caused in a port

Accidents caused by embarking or docking from a port can cause a wide range of injuries, from minor to fatal. Types of injury include:

  • Bruising
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries

It is important to report incidents to members of staff onboard the ship to ensure they are aware of what has happened and are able to fill out an accident report.

We understand it can be unnerving having an accident in an unfamiliar place, especially when it is so far from your home. Our friendly and experienced lawyers will provide you with all of the information you need for your case and have many years’ experience in dealing with a variety of travel claims.

"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.

The team at Aequitas Legal were excellent. They were very responsive to questions with appropriate answers as well as being very supportive. They reassured my husband & I throughout our case & helped to acquire an amazing settlement of our case without having to attend court. I would greatly recommend their services to anybody unreservedly.

"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.
