Navy cadet injuries
Navy Cadets offer young people unique opportunities to develop their personal skills through activities on land and water. These activities, ranging from rowing, kayaking, and voyages, are exciting, but can be dangerous if health and safety standards are not met. It is up to the volunteers and supervisors present to ensure that they exercise due diligence, so that any potential risks are minimised. However, accidents do and will continue to occur at sea. Most of the time, there is no one at fault, but if you think that the negligence of a person or organisation contributed to the injuries sustained by you or your child then you can make a no win, no fee claim.
Minor navy cadet injuries include trips, slips, and falls. The nature of water-based accidents means more serious accidents can be life threatening. For example, you or your child may have been injured while riding in a powerboat. This could have happened because the helmsman had not been adequately trained and failed to use his kill cord properly. If you have been injured at navy cadets, then you must record and submit an accident report within two days of the accident. You should report all the details about the accident in order to prove the negligence of a third party. Witness statements and photographs are also helpful.
