COMMON TYPES OF CRUISE SHIP ACCIDENT CLAIMS
There are many different types of cruise ship accident compensation claims involving cruise ships. This could include;
- Slips, falls or trips
- Food poisoning
- Injuries involving broken glass
- Food spillages and burns
- Falling objects
- Defective equipment
- Swimming pool accidents
- Unhygienic conditions causing sickness
If your accident or sickness was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. As making a personal injury claim for an international cruise can be complicated, seeking early advice will maximise your chances of a successful claim.
HELPING YOU WITH CRUISE SHIP ACCIDENT CLAIMS
If you have credible witnesses, a record of names of relevant people, and photographs of the accident or scene then this can help with cruise ship accident claims. Make sure you also keep hold of receipts relating to medical appointments you have had as a result of a cruise ship injury.
Cruise accidents are very diverse and can result in major health problems for some people. A head injury from a falling object, for example, can be very serious and leave an individual with total dependency on his/her family. Compensation amounts will reflect the severity of the injury and how long-term the condition is.
Some accidents appear to be minor but develop into something that perhaps prevents you from continuing to work. Jefferies Solicitor’s team can handle most types of personal injury claims. We are available to discuss your case initially in a confidential, yet informal manner.TRY THE ONLINE ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION IN CRUISE SHIP ACCIDENT CLAIMS
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two distinct factors – general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.
HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?
At Jefferies Solicitors, once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required to get your case underway.
A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will also be included.
A letter will then be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period in which they can reply and in their reply, they must state whether or not they are denying or accepting liability for your injuries. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.
