    Can I claim for an accident as a coastguard?


    Britain is a country of vast coastlines and working as a coastguard is a vital part of keeping British sea traffic, pleasure sailors and beaches safe.  Your training as a coastguard means you are highly skilled in a niche profession.  Coastguard work can be highly stimulating, as you work in different environments, weather conditions and alongside other people from many different places.  On the other hand, being a coastguard can expose you to a number of potential accidents.

    Perhaps your accident was partly caused by bad weather conditions, faulty machinery or another’s negligence.  Whatever the precise cause, if you can show the accident was caused by someone else, you may be able to claim for an accident as a coastguard.  Contact Accident Advice Helpline today by calling 0800 180 4123, or try our free 30-second claim calculator, to see what your claim could be worth.

    How can Accident Advice Helpline help?

    Accident Advice Helpline helps people to claim for financial compensation for accidents that were not their fault.  Typically, we would be able to help you if your accident happened in the last three years and meant you had to seek medical help.

    Document your accident

    One of the best things you can do to prepare your claim for compensation is to document as much as you remember about your accident.  This could mean writing down the names of the other people involved, their relationship to you and their professional status, the nature of your injuries and if they were caused by equipment, people or something else. Preparation means you do not have to worry about this side of the potential legal process later.  Your lawyer, however, may advise you to settle before things get to court, but even then, full documentation helps you to put your best case forward.
