    On shore fishing and what dangers there are


    If standing on the shore, or sitting on the pier, fishing rod in hand, is your idea of paradise, you may be looking forward to summer holidays and some well-earned time off. On shore fishing affords you the opportunity to chill out, take in the views and soak up the sun, but it can sometimes be dangerous.

    Here are some tips to help you reduce the risk of being injured in travel accidents this summer.

    Dangers of on shore fishing

    On shore fishing may seem like an idyllic activity to while away hours on holiday, but it does carry a risk of travel injuries. In most cases, you can enjoy on shore fishing without encountering any problems at all, but it is wise to be wary of potential hazards.

    If you’’re clambering over rocks to reach the best places to cast your line, there’’s a risk of slips, trips and falls. You may also find that sharp rocks and edges can cause cuts and grazes.

    Once you’’re set up and ready to go, take care to avoid pulling too hard and keep back from the edge. If you’’re on a cliff, a rock or a pier, there is always a danger that you could fall off or be dragged into the sea by powerful waves or currents.

    Staying safe when on shore fishing

    If you’’re on shore fishing, choose a safe, stable location.

    Try and make sure you can sit or stand comfortably. Keep back from the edge and always wear suitable shoes to reduce the risk of slips and trips.

    Keep an eye out for local weather forecasts. If high winds or torrential rain are forecast, consider postponing your on shore fishing trip. Adverse weather conditions can be particularly damaging on the coast and you could get swept away.

    Claiming compensation for travel accidents

    If you’’re going away this summer, hopefully you’’ll enjoy a wonderful trip. If you do get injured in a holiday accident and you aren’’t to blame, the experts at Accident Advice helpline could help you to claim compensation.

    Travel accident compensation is awarded to holidaymakers who have been injured as a result of somebody else’’s negligence. If you have the relevant evidence to support your version of events, we can guide you through the personal injury claims process. We work on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
