For many people, a cruise is the holiday of a lifetime. Cruise ship operators have a duty of care to their passengers and should protect them from harm, so if you've become ill while on a cruise then our lawyers could help you claim compensation.
With so many passengers in a confined space, cruise ship operators have a duty to follow clearly set out procedures to both minimise the risk of an illness outbreak, and to contain it if one occurs.
Illnesses such as food poisoning are unfortunately quite common on cruise ships, and we've helped thousands of passengers make cruise ship illness claims for:
However, compensation claims for cruise illnesses are by no means limited to gastric conditions – Legionnaires’ disease, a lung condition caused by bacteria in poorly-maintained water systems, is also a risk if cruise operators aren't following the proper health and safety practices.
If you've suffered an illness that you think was caused by negligence on the part of the crew or operator of a cruise ship, our lawyers could help you claim compensation. We have a proven track record in cruise ship illness claims, including high-profile cases such as the Thomson Dream gastric illness case, and the MS Sundream Norovirus outbreak.
Most of the international personal injury claims we handle are made in England & Wales. But in some cases it may be beneficial to make your claim abroad. We can advise you on this in a free initial consultation about making a claim.
Compensation claims in England & Wales are normally funded through a
No Win No Fee agreement. This means that there's nothing to pay upfront, and that you won’t have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful*.
