What's required to make an accident at sea claim? 

If you are injured at sea, the following steps will assist your personal injury solicitors to pursue your claim: 
• Make sure that your injury is reported 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. 
• Take witness details, no matter where the witnesses may be from- in a world of Facebook, Whatsapp and email, no matter where the witnesses live, 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. Report the injury, accident or illness to the ship’s crew, and a representative of your travel company right at the time of the accident itself. 
• See a doctor or go to the hospital, 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 compensation. 
• If you make a trip to the hospital or seek medical advice from a private doctor, keep all medical records, prescriptions and recommendations that you get from the doctor. 
• 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.

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.
