Cruise Ship injury claim solicitors.
Cruise Lines International Association announced that the number of ocean cruises taken by UK and Irish passengers in 2018 reached over two million for the first time.
Cruising is relaxing, glamourous, and an amazing way to travel, to different holiday destinations. However, no matter the cost of your holiday, or how glamourous the cruise ship, accidents still happen. If they do, and you are injured, then contact MG Legal. Our specialist personal injury solicitors are experts in accidents at sea and on cruise ships.
I’ve been injured on a cruiseship, can I make a claim for personal injury?
If you are injured or suffer illness on a cruise ship, and this was as result of someone else’s negligence, including the ship’s carrier, crew, or agents, then you can make a claim for personal injury, if you are abroad, or in the UK. MG Legal’s team of expert holiday personal injury solicitors accept instruction on a no win no fee basis, for the following cruise ship injury compensation claims:
Scalds and burns from food service

Injury due to items falling from overhead lockers, including baggage
Slips, trips and falls when getting on or off the cruise ship
Accidents due to turbulence

What's required to make an accident at sea claim?
Any claim for personal injury must be proven. Meaning that, it is the duty of the injured person to show that the care owed to them by the holiday provider, and cruise ship exployees, has fallen below the required standard, and that breach has caused them to suffer injury or illness
If you are injured on a cruise ship, or at sea, the following steps will assist our personal injury solicitors to pursue your claim:
• Report any injury or illness to a member of the ship’s crew. Read a copy
of the accident report and if you agree to the content, sign and keep a copy.
• If there were any witnessed to the incident that caused you to be injured, take
witness details, no matter where the witnesses may be from- in a world of
Facebook, Whatsapp and email, we can communicate with them.
• Take photographs of the cause of the incident, such as broken glass in the
swimming pool, a broken sun lounger, a defective step, or broken glass or plate.
• Go to the hospital, or, if not seriously injured, see a GP. If you do seek medical
attention, make sure you keep receipts of all travelling and prescription
expenses you incur which were directly associated with the accident. These are
not only refundable, but can be used to prove your injury and help you claim
• Ask for a copy of your medical notes- this may come at a small cost, but saves a
lot of time for your personal injury solicitor requesting them from a foreign country
at a later date.

How long do I have to make a claim for personal injury on a cruise ship, or at sea?
Accidents at sea, and on cruise ships differ from the 3 years given by the Limitation Act 1980. Anyone injured in the UK, or on a package holiday abroad, has 3 years to claim for personal injury. However, at sea, it is the Athens Convention that sets the limit, and this is often 2 years from the date you disembarked from the ship. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, or at sea, contact our personal injury experts and we tell you instantly if you are eligible to make a claim for personal injury.
