Beach holidays are still the most popular choice when it comes to the great British public choosing a destination. For the tried and tested fare, there are holiday camps or package holidays, but for adrenalin junkies there are water sports that include cannoning, kite-surfing, bungee jumping, paragliding, bridge climbing, white-water rafting, power boat racing and the now almost mundane jet skis.
What happens when you entrust your life into the hands of a small, unfamiliar tour organiser based in Charmouth or other small town tour operator who offers adventure holidays?
- If your inflatable, high speed rubber dinghy springs a leak or its engine gives up the ghost while you’re far from the shore, this could be down to misadventure or sheer incompetence on the part of the person responsible for maintenance.
- If your jet ski engine explodes and leaves you stranded with burns or your motor cruiser runs out of fuel and you drift far out into open waters and into a storm, who is to blame?
- If your hired scuba diving equipment comes with an aqualung that’s filled with either no breathable air at all or the wrong mix, who pays for your subsequent near death experience, the pain and suffering of your entirely preventable diving accident?
When you make a claim with an accident solicitor in Charmouth
You need to provide medical evidence that your injuries were the result of the accident you are claiming for and you need to provide evidence such as witness statements. Your accident solicitor in Charmouth or other legal specialist knows that the company you dealt with must have a valid public liability insurance on which the company can fall back and make a claim to pay you compensation.
If the negligent party accepts liability for their actions, your accident solicitor in Charmouth or another solicitor will write to them again and will outline the amount of money you feel is adequate compensation for your injuries. The negligent party can also put forward their own offer-to-settle letter, outlining what they are prepared to pay.
If both parties agree, your accident solicitor can settle your claim out of court which is by far the fastest way to deal with claims.
