Maritime Accident Claims

Carrs Solicitors represent victims of work related accidents on ships and on off-shore gas, oil and wind farm installations offering specialist work related injury claims compensation service.

We also represent clients who have been injured or have become ill as a result of cruise ship or ferry related injury or illness claims.

The off-shore industry is going through a period of expansion with the creation of new wind farms and many of the accidents that are reported to the Marine Investigation Branch involve construction work which would include maintenance.

There is particular regulatory framework to protect merchant seamen who are engaged in activities on merchant shipping and fishing vessels such as the Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1999, particular exclusions of certain work place regulations that do not apply in the maritime environment and for certain types of accidents a shorter two year limitation period applies.

Historically industries associated with shipping with docking and ship building (incidents of asbestos related disease due to the construction methods used within the industry.)

If you have been injured as a result of a maritime incident or as a result of a related occupation please contact Carrs Solicitors and we can arrange a home visit.

We confirm that we act on a No Win No Fee basis which means there is no risk of incurring costs if the claim is unsuccessful.

In mesothelioma cases there is no need to make any contribution to costs from damages.
