Accidents at sea

Accidents at sea are relatively rare. Even so, the team at Aspire Law has dealt successfully with a number of cases where a spinal cord injury has been sustained at sea. These include: a spinal cord injury that happened on a speed boat which was being driven recklessly by the uninsured owner; a yachting accident; a case where a client sustained a spinal cord injury whilst on a cruise ship.

Compensation claims for accidents at sea can be complex and challenging due to the difficulty in establishing fault and liability. There can be a lack of evidence and few available witnesses. It can be further complicated by the legal framework that applies when an accident occurs in international waters.

If you have been injured while at sea, and have sustained a spinal injury — whether close to home or further afield — please contact our specialist solicitors immediately.
