Personal injury and fatality claims

Accidents do happen, and if they do you’ll want the best legal advice available to resolve disputes/claims as quickly and commercially as possible. We understand that these are serious and emotive issues.

We have the expert knowledge to provide you with a full support service in defending claims brought by passengers and crew on commercial vessels, cruise ships and ferries, superyachts and leisure marine craft. We can advise and guide you through the whole process from protocol stage to trial, seeking out ways to protect you and your business and create the best outcome for all those involved.

We do have our specialist areas, particularly advising on claims due to propeller strikes and ‘kill chord’ incidents, but we can advise on all injury/fatality claims too.
