Injury claim in Limpley Stoke
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, you may be able to make an injury claim in Limpley Stoke, for example. You could also make an injury claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness which was the result of another person’s negligence. You also have three years to file a claim for such an illness.
Accidents on boats and ships
If you book a cruise with a UK tour operator and you have an accident while on board, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim on your return to the UK. Some of the most common accidents on board a boat are slips, trips and falls and some of these can be attributed to another person’s negligence. For example if you trip over an obstacle on deck, which should have been stowed away, you could be able to claim compensation for any injury you sustained. Similarly if an object fell on your head and you sustained an injury because it was not properly secured, you could also have grounds on which to base a personal injury compensation claim.
A wet deck can be treacherous if it does not have an anti-slip coating, or if this is worn in places. If you slip and there is no convenient handrail, and the coating is worn, then you might have grounds on which to base a claim.
If the ship is involved in an accident, you might be be able to make a compensation claim for injury, the death of a spouse, partner or child, as well as for a ruined holiday.
You would usually have three years in which to make a claim, but if you had an accident whilst on a boat or ship, you only have two years in which to make a claim.
