Understanding The Athens Convention
In the realm of cruise ship injury claims, the Athens Convention plays a crucial role. This international treaty mandates that cruise ship companies must have appropriate insurance coverage in place to provide compensation in the event of an accident. This includes accidents that occur during embarkation, disembarkation, and while on board the vessel. As experts in this area, we are well-versed in the intricacies of the Athens Convention and its implications for your claim.
