An accident solicitor in Hythe can win Compensation for your Boating Accident
The holiday season is upon us once more and thousands of happy holidaymakers flock to the South of England’s beaches to enjoy sunshine, swimming, windsurfing and sailing. The beautiful Kentish coast boasts both shingle as well as golden sandy beaches and several historic ports, where sailing enthusiasts can moor their yachts and stroll through the ancient harbour towns in a mild climate that make Kent such an attractive place to retire to or enjoy a week’s holiday.
One rarely expects to have an accident on holiday, but they do happen, perhaps because we are in unfamiliar surroundings, relying on strangers to take care of us.
Sailing accidents can end up costing lives, but thankfully the majority of cases do not result in fatalities. More often than not people get injured by not taking the right precautions when handling sails and other on board equipment or by not listening to what their skipper tells them to do.
Sometimes people get hurt because they have not been trained by an expert in the first place but thought they could simply take a boat out and it “would be alright”. Sailing is a dangerous sport and should only be attempted after proper training and obtaining the right sailing certificates. However, every year sea rescue teams get called out to retrieve stranded or injured tourists who should have known better.
An Accident Solicitor in Hythe
In any of these cases, you are unlikely to qualify for compensation, but if you paid for a sailing course and the professional expert did not train you well enough to master the basics or if you took out a hired yacht for the day and discovered too late that nothing on board worked properly and you had an accident as a result of somebody’s negligence, an accident solicitor in Hythe should be able to get you compensation for your injuries.
Provided the accident occurred in the last 3 years, you have every right to make a claim for compensation. How do you find the right kind of legal representation for such a specialised area of the law?
