The Isle of Arran is fifty minutes (approximately) away from the Scottish mainland by ferry. Any type of transport can be problematic, and accidents do occur on ferries and other boats and ships. If you are looking for an accident solicitor Isle of Arran-based, then you might have been injured while on the ferry, or had any other type of accident. You might have been typing accident solicitor Isle of Arran into the search box in your laptop, hoping to find one who could represent you in a compensation claim. If you live on the Isle of Arran, then you might have been involved in another type of accident which was not your fault, and be looking for an accident solicitor Isle of Arran, either in the phone book or online.
Accidents on a boat
If you were struck by a falling object while travelling on a boat and were injured, then the probability is that the object had not been properly secured. In a case such as this, you might have grounds for a personal injury claim. Other common accidents aboard a boat or ship are slips, trips and falls, which are the most common of all accidents because they can happen anywhere. However, a boat or ship owner has a responsibility both to his/her employees and to passengers. The deck should have an anti-slip coating and have hand rails which are securely fixed to the sides or walls of the boat. All ships and boats need to have life-saving equipment which is regularly checked and in good working order and the firefighting equipment on board also must be checked regularly. The crew should also have received appropriate training so that they can handle both the equipment on board and take care of the passengers’ safety.
