    Broadstairs solicitor


    Broadstairs is a town near the coast in England. Its economy is dependent on tourism, which is why you will find many hotels and guesthouses in the area. It is known for its beaches and for hosting the Broadstairs Music Festival in August.

    Ships are used in Broadstairs for transport, and if you happen to be someone who was affected by a shipping accident then you could contact a Broadstairs solicitor to help you find grounds for a lawsuit against the party at fault.

    However, there is one stipulation for your case to be valid: that the accident must have happened through no fault of your own.

    Requesting the help you need from a solicitor

    Shipping accidents can cause a lot of harm, and there are various types of injuries that may occur. In some instances they can prove to be fatal. You may sustain serious injuries, in which case you would benefit if you were to get compensated, as you may need to receive healthcare for the rest of your life as a result.

    • You may suffer from a metatarsal fracture if you happen to trip or lose your balance while aboard a ship. Under such circumstances, you would be required to take time off work or you may have to rely on crutches until recovery is complete.
    • The impact of the accident may have caused you to suffer from head or brain injuries. In some instances, the injury sustained may be severe. Other accidents may even result in fatal injuries.
    • If you were sailing the ship you may end up with a broken wrist, and it could take a long while for you to recover in such circumstances.

    Your solicitor will represent you in court after helping develop your case, as usually you yourself will not have to attend.
