You may have been to the September music festival on the beach at Looe, or perhaps you visited while you were on holiday. It is an idyllic, picturesque fishing port but even in such beautiful surroundings, accidents can happen.
If you have been injured in the last three years in an accident that was demonstrably not your fault, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Looe, or one in any other location in the British Isles. However if you had an accident and were injured while at sea, in the air or in an airport, you only have two years in which to make an injury claim in Looe or elsewhere.
Injury claim in Looe
You can make an injury claim in Looe, for example if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can show was the result of negligence on the part of another person. You have three years from first being diagnosed in which to make an injury claim in Looe or elsewhere.
Accidents at sea
You may not believe it but Great Britain’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB) states in its latest annual report that in 2012 there were 260 accidents, including six fatalities, suffered by the UK fishing fleet.
There are other accidents at sea of course, and these include those relating to cruise ships. In May 2013, a crew member from the “Tyrusland” (UK registered) died after being crushed on a ro-ro cargo vessel while alongside the port in Tripoli, Libya. Accidents on boats and ships can involve both crew and passengers according to the MAIB.
If you have been injured while on a sea-going vessel, and you can prove that the accident you were involved in was the fault of another person, then you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Looe for example.
