The town of Gosport is located in the county of Hampshire, which lies on the south coast of England. As Gosport is situated just by Portsmouth Harbour and the City of Portsmouth itself, a pedestrian ferry takes commuters and shoppers across the short stretch of water that separates the peninsula on which Gosport lies from the harbour.
Gosport used to be an important naval and military town, linked with the naval base at Portsmouth. When Gosport’s role within the overall defense strategy of Great Britain changed in the last 25 years of the 20th century, tourism took over as a major source of employment.
Tourists interested in Britain’s maritime history mainly focus on Portsmouth Harbour, but Gosport benefits from its close proximity to the much larger harbour, where some of the nation’s most treasured naval heritage is on show. Each time the harbour hosted an International Festival of the Sea, around 250,000 enthusiastic visitors turned up. Initially, the festival was meant to take place every couple of years but there hasn’t been one now since 2007 due to budget restraints.
Had an accident as a visitor to Gosport?
If you had an accident during such an event and that accident was the result of somebody else’s negligence, you could make an injury claim in Gosport and receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
If you lived in Gosport and commuted daily into Portsmouth using the pedestrian ferry, which incidentally also carries push bikes and motorcycles, you would probably see all sorts of reckless behaviour from other people every day. Darting here and there, weaving in and out of rows of parked or stationary cars, cyclists can reach quite considerable speeds. Travelling without light or highly visible clothing, they are virtually soundless and invisible, until they are right upon you and have knocked you down.
Anyone injured in a collision with a reckless cyclist can make an injury claim in Gosport, provided their accident happened within the last 3 years and the other party was to blame for the accident.
