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. 

Cruise Injury FAQs

Who can you make a personal injury claim against a cruise line for an injury? 

You can make a personal injury claim against a cruise line if you have suffered an injury due to their negligence or inadequate safety measures.

How long does a personal injury claim take when dealing with a cruise line? 

The duration of a cruise line injury claim can vary depending on the complexity of the case, but we strive to resolve cases as efficiently as possible whilst getting you the most favourable outcome possible.

How much compensation can I get from a cruise line injury claim? 

The amount of compensation you may receive depends on the specific circumstances of your case, including the severity of the injury and its impact on your life.

What is covered in a cruise line injury claim?

A cruise line injury claim can cover medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and other damages.

How long do you have to make a claim?

Under the Athens Convention, you generally have two years to make a claim, which is shorter than the usual three-year timeframe for a normal personal injury claim. We can talk you through this if you are unsure.

Can you claim if you were a crew member?

This would fall under a slightly different process as it would be an accident at work. We can help you explore your options if this is the case to bring a claim against your employer.
