urgent info needed ... stolen accessory

They stole an important accessory during a stop at the marina IGY of Saint Lucia in the Caribbean. I would like to urgently know if I am entitled to be reimbursed, I have the invoice dated three months ago, and even the police complaint. My boat is not insured for the partial theft.

Please respond only if you are sure of what you assert.

Sorry for my english

Re: urgent info needed ... stolen accessory

If you wish that IGY reimburses you for the theft then, unless you can prove collusion or gross negligence on their part, the answer is "NO". You really should get legal advice in St. Lucia if you wish to pursue the matter, since any information give here will be based on other legal systems and suppositions.

Re: urgent info needed ... stolen accessory

Well, I am sure I don't know who "they" are and whether you are asking the forum about St. Lucia law, specific insurance company policy, or IGY business practices.

Your English is fine, but your post lacks details.

And if one of those "accessories" is those in your profile picture, then, yeah, people are going to attempt to steal them constantly...
