Compensation for Injuries and Illness on a Cruise Ship

Boat Illness Compensation

If you became ill on board, or had an accident then contact us today.

As with any establishment that accepts guests, cruise ships are required to adhere to strict health and safety guidelines.  Despite that, illness, food poisoning, and accidents can still happen on cruise ships, boats, pleasure cruisers, and ferries.  Whether you were a guest, or a worker on a cruise ship, the operator has a duty to offer a high level of care and protection to you.

If they fail in that care and are at fault for your illness, accident, or injury, then you could be due cruise ship compensation.  Call us today to find out more and to proceed with a claim.
