    North Devon Accident

    Have you experienced a North Devon accident?

    You may live locally and have suffered a North Devon accident. Or, as many people travel to the area during the summer months, it’s possible that you are a non-local resident who has been hurt in a North Devon accident while visiting the area.

    Although a North Devon accident can occur anywhere at any time, unfortunately people do seem to suffer injuries while on the beach or in the sea from time to time. If you’re not familiar with the area or don’t regularly swim in the sea, it can be fairly easy to get into trouble, and you could suffer a North Devon accident as a result.

    In recent years, surfing and water sports have become more popular, and many tourists and holidaymakers are now keen to take to the water once they get to the coast. Although surfboards and water sports equipment are usually available to hire, this doesn’t mean that it’s safe for beginners to take to the water alone.

    If you’ve never surfed before or are not a particularly strong swimmer, you may want to seek out an instructor and take lessons before you get into the water. Although private lessons can seem costly, they can help you to avoid a North Devon accident, and could save your life if you were to get into trouble in the water. If your budget doesn’t stretch to private lessons, you can still access help. Many local surf and water sports schools offer group lessons, so you can learn how to surf safely without having to spend money on private lessons.

    However, if you do take lessons, you’ll want to ensure that your instructor is experienced and qualified. If they don’t have access to safety equipment, or if they provide you with the wrong instructions, you could be more at risk of a North Devon accident occurring, and you could be hurt as a result.

    If you do suffer an injury because of an instructor or damaged equipment, you may be able to make a compensation claim against those responsible. If they can be shown to be liable for your injuries, there’s a good chance that you will be able to obtain compensation from them.

    If you’re keen to make a claim following a North Devon accident, we may be able to help. We even operate on a no win no fee basis, so if you make a claim with us then you won’t have to pay anything upfront, and you certainly won’t have to worry about how to fund your claim.
