    Injury claim in Putney


    Injury claim in Putney

    Qualify for an injury claim in Putney?

    Putney is one of the most significant rowing sites within the UK. Historically, this came about because the water was increasingly becoming polluted in Central London through increasing numbers of steam powered boats and sewage. The construction of the London and South Western Railway from Waterloo Station to Putney, and additionally the Metropolitan District Railway to Putney Bridge, afforded rowing enthusiasts easy commuting. The University Boat Race is an annual competition between Oxford University Boat Club and Cambridge University Boat Club.

    The first race happened in 1892 and had Henley-on-Thames as it’s starting point. Putney has been the host to the popular race starting point ever since 1845. Putney is now home to more than twenty rowing clubs along its embankments and is synonymous with rowing and water based activities.

    Rowing and other water sports can be enjoyed by everyone, but remember water can be unpredictable and therefore dangerous so due care must be taken at all times. If you have been unlucky enough to have been involved in an accident upon the water, you may be entitled to file an injury claim in Putney and claim compensation for your injuries.

    Don’t delay in making a claim as accidents which occur on boats, ships, cruise liners and yachts can be subject to separate regulations and any compensation following an injury claim in Putney, may need be made within the shorter time frame of two years, rather than the usual three. Common causes of boating accidents include:

    • Capsizing
    • Overloading or improper loading
    • Man overboard
    • Ignoring weather
    • Unsafe fuel usage
    • Faulty safety gear
    • Slips and trips
    • Food poisoning

    Have you suffered from any of these ailments whilst being on a boat, yacht, cruise liner or ship in the past two years? If you answered yes! – you could be entitled to make an injury claim in Putney and claim compensation for your trauma or losses.
