Have you suffered an accident in Dover?
Well known as a shipping port, many people arrive at Dover if they are planning to travel somewhere by boat or ferry. With numerous shipping companies using Dover as a base, there can be a number of boats and ferries leaving and arriving in Dover on any one day. This means that there can be thousands of passengers waiting to board or disembark.
Although passengers are well catered for at Dover, the sheer number of people in the area can mean that someone is likely to suffer an accident in Dover. With larger ships holding upwards of five thousand passengers, that area can get very busy when people are waiting to get on board.
Whilst passengers may be at risk from suffering an accident in Dover, employees could also suffer an accident in Dover. As many ship workers work for two or three months at a time before returning home, whenever a large ship docks at Dover, it is likely that staff will be embarking and disembarking along with passengers.
If you work on a ship or ferry and you’ve suffered an accident in Dover, you may be able to obtain compensation, providing the injury wasn’t your fault. If, for example, a mechanical error meant that the ship hadn’t docked properly and you were hurt as a result, the operators may be responsible for your accident in Dover and you could successfully obtain compensation.
Similarly, if you’re a passenger or even a local resident and you suffer an accident in Dover that wasn’t your fault, you may want to make a claim against whoever caused the accident in Dover.
