Are you looking for an accident solicitor in Isle of Bute?
If so perhaps you are on Bute on holiday, or you may live on that beautiful island. Unfortunately, accidents can and do occur in the most idyllic surroundings.
You might have had an accident while at sea, perhaps on a fishing boat, a ferry, yacht or other types of boat, and have suffered an injury. The most common types of injury which occur everywhere are slips, trips and falls. It is possible that you fell over an obstacle which should have been stowed away and not left on a boat’s deck. If this were the case, then you would probably have grounds to file a compensation claim. You might have slipped on a wet deck and again, you might have grounds for a claim if the floor did not have an anti-slip surface, or if there were no handrail which you could have held.
Another common accident on board a boat or ship is being hit and injured by a falling object which was not securely stowed away.
You would also have grounds to make a claim if the life-saving equipment on board was faulty, or if there were no adequate equipment such as life preservers and seaworthy lifeboats.
If you work on a fishing boat, then you understand how dangerous your job is. It is up to your employer to give you training in how to operate the equipment on board and to instruct you in regard to the Health and Safety regulations which you should adhere to while on board. Health and Safety at work legislation cover all workplaces, whether on land, sea or in the air.
