Accident solicitor in Kennack Sands – be safe in the surf
The waters of Kennack Sands have a huge tidal range. Due to its shallow angle it can regularly produce four and five foot waves and this is the reason the Cornish surfing set finds it so attractive. If you are not an experienced surfer or are visiting the sands with the family then you need to treat the powerful waters of Kennack Sands with caution. If you see that the waves are rolling in then it is not safe to be in the water unless you are a capable swimmer; even if you are only messing in the waters edge with the children be wary.
Large waves produce what is called an “undertow”. This is the force of the water as it is pulled back out to sea after hitting the shore. It is the undertow of strong waves that causes more mishaps on beaches than anything else as it can easily pull you off your feet and leave you underwater. Flags fly on beaches for a reason. If one is flying then always obey it.
Cover up in the sun
Sunburn is one of the most common problems that British sunbathers face. Because we are not used to being in hot conditions we can be very careless in making sure we have adequate protection. Always wear a high factor sun cream (yes, even in Britain) it is not the heat that but the skin but the level of UV in the suns rays and tests have proven that some of Britain’s coastline has the most dangerous UV level in Europe.
Of course sunburn and water accidents cannot be used to make a claim for personal injury they are purely accidents usually created by the actions of the person involved. If however you do suffer an accident and it was created by the actions of someone else then you may have the right to make a personal injury claim.
