There’s nothing like a nice relaxing day fishing, but you should always be cautious. If you’re not careful you might be subject to one of the injuries you could sustain from a fishing accident. If your accident was not your fault, you could claim compensation and Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
Things you could suffer while fishing
One problem with fishing is that it is carried out on, or near, water. It can be easy to slip and if you do not get out of the water fast enough, you may suffer hypothermia. This is particularly important if you have taken a trip sea fishing.
Where lots of people are fishing close together, be careful when other fishermen cast out. If they’re not careful their line could fly towards you and snag you. This can cause a nasty cut.
If you are on a fishing trip as part of a holiday, you could slip if the floor of the boat is wet. This can lead to bruising and in some cases you may even suffer a broken bone.
