If you live and work in Peel and have been involved in any type of accident which was not your fault, you could be thinking about making a compensation claim in Peel. You may have been injured while on a boat or ship, and could have been employed on one, or simply on a boat as part of your holiday. You can claim for injuries which resulted from any type of accident for which you were not responsible wherever you are in the UK and can file a compensation claim in Peel, or one in any other UK location.
Types of compensation claim in Peel
You can make a compensation claim in Peel (for example) for a work-related illness or an occupational disease as long as you and your personal injury or accident solicitor can prove your medical condition was caused by the negligence of your employer. You can also claim for any illness you contracted which was caused by another person’s negligence. The most obvious example of one of these illnesses is food poisoning which you may have contracted because food in a restaurant was improperly prepared or cooked.
Accidents on fishing boats
The Great Britain’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) reported at the beginning of August 2013 that in the previous year, 2012, there were 260 accidents, which included six fatalities suffered by Britain’s fishing fleet. Nine fishing boats were lost in these accidents.
Some of the common accidents on fishing boats are:-
- slips, trips and falls, when perhaps anti-slip coating on flooring has been worn away, or which occur because there are obstacles on deck which should have been properly stowed away and secured.
- injuries resulting from improperly stowed items which fall in crew members.
- injuries caused by fishing nets which have not been correctly handled.
- injuries from defective or badly-maintained equipment.
If equipment has not been properly stowed away, or if it is defective, this could be construed as negligence on the part of the boat’s owner or his or her representative – the captain.
If you have had an accident on a boat that was the result of another person’s negligence and in no way your fault, you should contact an accident solicitor who is experienced in dealing with accidents on fishing boats.
