Pevensey Bay was the scene of William the Conqueror’s landing before he won the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Later, in the 18th and 19th century it was a haven for smugglers who landed their contraband there. Another of Pevensey’s claims to fame is that it was painted by John Constable.
Pevensey Bay was the scene of what might have been a tragic accident in July, 2013, when two small boys sank in quicksand. Luckily their father was able to haul them out of it. The people responsible for the public’s safety on the beach are Pevensey Coastal Defence Ltd. They claimed that it was impossible to put up warning signs on the beach as the areas of quicksand change. However, there should be signs put up along the beach or in a car park, warning people of the possible dangers of walking along the shore.
Expert injury solicitors in Pevensey
If the two boys who sank in the quicksand had drowned in it, their parents might have been able to make a personal injury compensation claim against Pevensey Coastal Defence Ltd. if, indeed, there had been no warning signs in pace in the vicinity. A firm of expert injury solicitors in Pevensey may have been able to help them proceed with a personal injury compensation claim, but no amount of money can ever compensate for such a loss.
If you have an accident which you and your injury solicitors in Pevensey (or ones based elsewhere) can prove was caused by another person and you were in no way responsible for it, you may be entitled to make a claim for your injuries.
