Accident Solicitor St Lawrence
The parish of St Lawrence is situated on the south shore of the Blackwater Estuary in the Maldon district of Essex. The estuary and its surrounds provide the perfect location for a wide range of outdoor pursuits, including sailing and road cycling.
The number of people engaging in outdoor pursuits here is increasing year on year. All of these physical activities are inherently dangerous and due to the diverse nature of outdoor pursuits, the list of potential accidents can go on forever. Some of the main contributing factors include lack of staff training, faulty equipment, poor planning on behalf of the organisers and hazardous terrain that has not been risk assessed by staff. Any of these factors could cause potentially fatal injuries.
Duty of care obligations
Outdoor pursuits companies have a duty of care and this means that they must follow specific guidelines in order to protect their customers from accidents and injuries. For example, they must perform rigorous health and safety tests and checks to enable their participants to stay safe from harm. They must also ensure that their staff have the skills, qualifications and experience required to fulfil their obligations. While the accident rate for outdoor activities is relatively low, freak accidents do happen and this is where personal injury compensation claims come in handy.
Compensation claims for outdoor pursuits accidents
Outdoor pursuits enthusiasts injured in accidents are eligible to make compensation claims if they have experienced suffering through no fault of their own. Often, confusion can surround responsibility in an accident and it is important to seek professional legal help from an accident solicitor in St Lawrence.
