    Who do I claim against for a beach accident?

    If you should sustain an injury during your beach holiday you might ask yourself questions such as “Who do I claim against for a beach accident?

    The reply may not be easy to determine at first glance.  If you have cause to believe that the injury can be attributed to another party, you may be able to file a claim with your insurance company to regain monies spent obtaining medical care, plus additional funds for loss of wages or pain and distress.

    What went wrong?

    Beach holidays are a great way to unwind and relax. People plan their holidays months in advance and think of all the ways to have fun in the sand and surf. No-one wants to consider that there might be an accident during what is supposed to be a pleasurable time. Injuries do occur, however, even on holiday.

    There are many reasons a person can get hurt at the beach.  You might be enjoying a day out on the water, water-skiing or para-sailing when an equipment failure causes you to crash. Perhaps an afternoon boat ride ends badly due to an incompetent captain.  The accident may be something as simple as stepping on a sharp object or getting food poisoning.

    One may sustain injury due to faulty equipment or simple negligence.  On land you may experience a fall, car accident, bruises, sprains or even broken bones.  Each of these things can cause mild injury to serious pain and suffering.  It is our responsibility at Accident Advice Helpline to put you in touch with one of our expert lawyers.  Each expert is trained in the procedures involved in filing a claim for compensation that is appropriate for any situation. Simply phone the 24-hour free helpline on 0800 689 0500 to be connected to a legal representative.

    Who is responsible?

    Someone else may be liable for the injury associated with your specific beach accident. Liability may not be obvious to the untrained eye, which is why it is vital to obtain professional help before filing a claim.  If you are uncertain about any liability issue, phone Accident Advice Helpline to get information pertinent to your case and to receive advice on the next steps to take.  Our team will work with you during the process to ensure that you have an actionable claim.

    When equipment failure is involved in any type of accident, it may be the fault of the equipment manufacturer.  These manufacturers have full responsibility to ensure that their products function well and are mechanically sound.  These companies are also responsible for ensuring that the products can be used repeatedly while remaining safe during operation.
