    Accident solicitor in Crantock


    Crantock is a small village in Cornwall, located ca. 2 miles southwest of Newquay, a favourite holiday destination for surfers from around the world. Situated by the River Gannel and close to the West Pentire, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest because of its wild flowers and rare plant life, Crantock is also popular with surfers as the River Gannel has its own beach, sandy dunes and tidal waves.

    It is possible to get to Crantock Beach by ferry, where the river eventually joins the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the land that surrounds Crantock belongs to the National Trust and thus the landscape has been preserved exactly as it would have looked for centuries.

    Although ferry disasters are thankfully rare in the British Isles, boating accidents and collisions between surfers and jet ski enthusiasts happen quite frequently during the brief summer season, when every water sports fan is trying to cram in as many hours of practice as possible.

    Newquay attracts a large number of international visitors from around the world, who look forward to making new friends in the town’s vibrant bars and lively clubs. Happy Hour drinking can unfortunately be held responsible for a great number of accidents in the UK – from drink driving on Cornish motorways to being in charge of a surfboard while under the influence of Tequila and Vodka.

    Jet skiers, wind- and kitesurfers can reach phenomenal speeds. When they plough into a swimmer, the high speed impact can cause fatalities. Although kitesurfers and jet skiers are given designated areas from where to launch, a drunken kitesurfer or jetskier under the influence of drugs may not heed the warning signs.

    If you were the accidental bystander who nearly got decapitated by a kitesurfer launching into the water or were run over by a jet skier not bothering to stop, you can claim compensation for your injuries, provided your accident occurred within the last 3 years. If you were a surfer harmlessly minding your own business, enjoying your sport and got injured when a motorboat drove through the middle of your board, you can claim compensation with the help of an accident solicitor in Crantock.
