Over a Thousand Pounds in Compensation for Cruise Ship Injury


Mrs Drake-Brown was happily enjoying her breakfast while on the “Freedom of the Seas” Cruise when she was scalded by hot water spilled by a waiter who was working in the restaurant.

Holiday Illness Compensation

The injuries caused painful burns and ruined the remainder of her cruise.

Because of the damage done, Mrs Drake-Brown instructed the well-known national travel claims specialist Simpson Millar to represent her.

Claimant Successful in Claim Against Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean are part of the RCL Cruises group and were the cruise operator responsible for Mrs Drake-Brown’s safety whilst on board the cruise ship.

Simon Lomax, a specialist maritime lawyer at Simpson Millar represented Mrs Drake Brown.

Matters were made complicated by the fact that the accident happened in open seas and it was not clear what laws from what country applied.

Simon was able to navigate through the legal minefield and rely on the international Athens Convention to get the outcome Mrs Drake-Brown deserved.

Praise for Simpson Millar’s Specialist Cruise Liner Lawyer

Delighted with the outcome of her case, Mrs Drake Brown praised Simon’s “understanding, professionalism” and remarked on his “caring” attitude towards clients.

Simon remarked “Health and safety on board cruise liners must be of paramount importance whether it involves making sure the boat does not sink or catering staff are well trained – people do not deserve to have their cruise holiday ruined by injury”.
