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.
