It is vital that you do not delay
What sort of situations Can I claim?
If you have had an accident on a boat or ferry the most common type of injuries are where people have slipped or tripped in getting on or off the ferry or cruise shop. Such accidents can also happen when the boat is at sea. And a very common claim – particularly on cruise ships- is for food poisoning which can have a devastating impact on those affected -often ruining the whole trip by the time they have recovered.
The 2 most common type of airplane accident compensation claims are for luggage falling from lockers above where the passenger is sitting and secondly for scalding when tea or coffee is served and is spilled- often causing serious burns. Other common problems are being run over by a drinks or food trolley in the middle of the aisle or being injured by sharp edges such as on the sides of seats or trollies.
In all of these types of situations we can advise you if someone is at fault or has failed in their duty to you as a passenger and if so start a claim for compensation.
