Injured on a cruise? – Tourist recovers holiday compensation of £8000

Ill or Injured on a once in a lifetime cruise holiday?

Mr Nelson was enjoying the sights of Egypt on a cruise when he slipped on a spillage, causing him to fall into a hatchway and down a ladder. He successfully claimed compensation from his tour operator for his holiday accident on a cruise ship.

His cruise ship accident claim included damages for an injury to his knee and a fracture to his ankle. Loss of enjoyment of the cruise holiday was also awarded because he had to curtail his holiday on the 3rd day due to his injuries.

Mr Nelson underwent an MRI scan and an arthroscopic investigation of this knee on his return to the UK, and a strain of the medial collateral ligament together with a 30 percent rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament were diagnosed and attributed to his slip onboard the cruise ship. He was awarded £8000 in compensation which included £1000 for his loss of holiday cruise enjoyment.
