Going About An Accident Injury Claim in Highcliffe On Sea
If you are going through your local telephone directory looking for a lawyer for an accident injury claim in Highcliffe on Sea, or are going through the search engine ranking pages looking for an accident injury claim Highcliffe on Sea or even one in Highcliffe, you need to find one who has experience in dealing with accident claims, and not a divorce or property lawyer.
If you live near the sea then it is possible that you may have an accident while on a boat, yacht, ferry or other sea-faring vessel at some stage. The Health and Safety regulations apply to boats as to any other public place or workplace. This means that if you have an accident on a boat, which was not your fault then you can make a claim for compensation for your injury. The most common accidents anywhere are slips, trips and falls, and there are also accidents which may be caused by falling objects. If you are a passenger on a cruise liner or a chartered yacht, you may get food poisoning and you can claim for this illness too.
In general there is a three year time limit from the date you had the accident for you to lodge a compensation claim for a personal injury. However in some cases when an accident or illness occurs on a boat, you have two years to make a claim. You need to check with a lawyer for an accident injury claim in Highcliffe on Sea, or any other accident solicitor. Of course if you lodge a claim for compensation immediately after the accident or illness the time limit is not a problem.
