It is possible that is you are looking for an accident solicitor in Blackwater, you suffered an accident while on a day out or while on holiday, perhaps while on holiday on a narrow boat.
If you hire a narrow boat for a canal holiday, you should ensure it was recently built, as many older boats all over the UK had asbestos in them. This can cause a number of diseases which fall into the category of asbestosis.
Your narrow boat should have been checked thoroughly before you board and you should receive training in how to operate one if you have not hired one with a skipper. You will need training regarding how to safely open and close lock gates and how to safely steer a boat. All people on board should have life preservers and these should be worn when on deck.
Slips, trips and falls can occur when a boat’s deck is wet, so before hiring one check that your narrow boat has an anti-slip coating on the deck.
Health and Safety regulations cover all boats, whether they are being operated on inland waterways or at sea.
If you have an accident aboard any type of boat or ship, it should be reported and detailed in the accident book, along with the names of witnesses and their contact numbers. It would be good if you could take photographs of the accident scene as these could assist when you need evidence to support any claim for personal injury compensation.
