What Evidence Can Help Your Claim?
There are many useful forms of evidence that could prove decisive in your claim. For instance:
- Photographs and/or videos of the location where the accident took place
- Photographs of your injuries
- Witness statements from fellow passengers. If possible, gather contact information from witnesses following your accident, so they can back up your version of events
- An accident report from the cruise ship operator
A written record from the doctor who treated you after your accident, outlining the extent and severity of your injuries, and what treatment you were given.
To support this evidence, your Solicitor can arrange for you to undergo an independent medical assessment, so we have an objective, third party record of your condition and your long-term prognosis.
Who is Responsible?
The cruise company you booked with may operate a tender boat themselves, or perhaps hire a local operator to transport passengers between land and the cruise ship. As a result, establishing who is responsible for the accident could be difficult, which is why it’s best to contact our Holiday Claims Solicitors who have many years of experience in travel law.
