Accidents on Boats
If you live near the sea, then you could have an accident while on a boat, yacht, ferry or other sea-faring vessel. You might be an owner of a boat or yacht or you could live on a boat, be on holiday, or work on a boat. The Health and Safety regulations apply to boats as to any other public place or workplace. This means that if you have an accident on a boat which was not your fault, you can make a claim for compensation for your injury. The most common accidents anywhere are slips, trips and falls, and there are also accidents which may be caused by falling objects. If you are a passenger on a cruise liner or a chartered yacht, you may get food poisoning and you can claim for this illness too.
In general there is a three year time limit from the date you had the accident for you to lodge a compensation claim for a personal injury. However in some cases when an accident or illness occurs on a boat, you have two years to make a claim. You need to check with an accident solicitor in Highcliffe-on-Sea or any other accident solicitor. Of course if you lodge a claim for compensation immediately after the accident or illness the time limit is not a problem.
