Boat Claims

Home » Personal Legal Services » Work, Public Places and Abroad » Accidents Abroad » Boat Claims

Cruising is known to be a relaxing way to spend a holiday and see the world. Unfortunately, accidents can happen aboard ship and serious injuries can result.

The law which governs accidents on boats is the Athens Convention which establishes a regime of liability for injuries suffered whilst at sea.

This can differ from the usual rules for establishing liability in England and Wales so it is essential your solicitor specialises in these types of accidents.

One of the main differences between these accidents and those occurring in England and Wales is the time for bringing a claim, which in this case is two years, as opposed to three years for other personal injury claims.

If you are considering making a claim you get specialist advice from experts in this field without delay. Our specialist Personal Injury Lawyers know how to get you the compensation you deserve and have years of experience helping clients.

We also handle these types of claims on a No win, No Fee basis. This means that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.
