The Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992 apply to cruises as well and cover cruise injury. If you were injured on a cruise anywhere in the world with our help it is easy to bring a cruise compensation claim against the Company you booked it with in the UK.
I didn’t book a package Holiday Cruise
If you didn’t book the cruise as a package holiday things can be trickier. Really, the cruise compensation claim should be brought in the country of the port where the cruise ship set sail from and would be covered under something called The Athens Convention.
If where you set sail from is outside the UK we would have to seek confirmation from the cruise company that they agree that the courts of England would have jurisdiction and that English Law would apply. This would not affect your cruise compensation claim as we are cruise compensation Solicitors and specialise in cruise injuries and have vast experience.
What types of Cruise Compensation Claims and Accidents are covered?
A cruise compensation claim could be made for virtually any type of cruise accident from tripping in a doorway or slipping on the deck to diving into the swimming pool and suffering a cruise injury.
How long have I got to claim for Cruise Compensation?
Unlike accidents which occur in England and Wales where you have 3 years from the date of the accident to make an accident claim, if you are injured on a cruise and want to make a cruise compensation claim, you must do so within 2 years of the date of the cruise injury although time limits do vary and you are best to check straight away to ensure that you do not fall foul of strict time limits. .
What We Can Do To Help You Claim for Your Cruise Injury?
We are cruise compensation Solicitors and specialise in dealing with cruise injury claims. We will run your claim against the cruise operator to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of cruise compensation.

Hear a few words from one of our happy clients
“Mr Saleh was at work when he went over on his ankle in a pothole. A number of Solicitors refused to take his case on as they did not think he would win. We spoke to him and quickly established that he had good prospects of success. We contacted the Employer and secured an admission of fault which resulted in Mr Saleh being compensated. Mr Saleh said "throughout the journey that I experienced with Carter & Carter Solicitors, I felt that my claim was being resolved and that the result would be a successful one. I am greatly appreciative of the people involved with my claim and how they constantly kept me informed."
