Boscombe is a well-known holiday destination in the UK and it prides itself on its innovative approach to tourism. Unfortunately people have accidents even while on holiday, although these may be different to the ones they might have at other times of the year while following their usual daily routine. There are many reasons why you could be looking for an accident solicitor in Boscombe and some are listed below.
Types of holiday accidents
- Water accidents: these include accidents while swimming, doing other water sports or while scuba diving.
- Accidents on board a ship, ferry boat or cruise liner.
- Accidents on a plane or even in the airport lounge.
- Sporting accidents: while skiing, mountain climbing and hiking for example.
- Food poisoning: either from incorrectly prepared or cooked food, or from unsafe drinking water.
- Feet injuries occur when people walk barefoot on beaches and walkways.
If you were injured on a boat or plane then you might only have two years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, as such accidents are governed by International Conventions. Under normal circumstances in the UK you have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for an injury that occurred in the UK and was the responsibility of another person. The same is true for a work-related illness; you have three years to file a claim from the date you were first told about the nature of your illness.

It is possible that some of the sports’ equipment you bought or hired was defective in some way and this could have been the cause of our accident. For any personal injury compensation claim to be successful you have to be able to prove that the accident and resulting injury were not your fault but caused by the negligence of another person. An accident solicitor in Boscombe or elsewhere will need to be fairly certain that this is the case.If you are unable to track down a suitable accident solicitor in Boscombe or elsewhere in the UK, then you could contact Accident Advice Helpline.
