Have you been involved in a boating accident?
Although some yacht owners and amateur sailors are required to gain specific licences before they are able to take to the seas, it’s relatively easy to purchase or rent a boat and use it as you wish. Whilst most people take great care to avoid dangerous conditions, newer sailors may be unaware of some of the dangers.
Whilst thorough training can help you to handle certain situations, such as dangerous seas or malfunctioning equipment, if you don’t have many sailing hours under your belt, you may be unsure of how to deal with such situations and you may need to request help from the coastguard.
With excellent coastguards and lifeboat teams situated around the United Kingdom, many people who get into trouble in the water are saved. However, even though their lives may be saved, they could still have suffered significant injuries.
If these injuries weren’t their fault and they were caused by someone or something else, they may even be able to make a claim for compensation.
Could an injury claim solicitor in Horton help?
If you’ve suffered an injury on a boat or ship and it wasn’t your fault, a solicitor in Horton could help you to make a compensation claim in much the same way as if you’d suffered an injury whilst on dry land. Providing you can show that someone or something else was responsible for the injury, it’s likely that an injury claim solicitor in Horton will be able to help you make an effective claim.
Before they make a claim, however, many claimants want to ensure that it will be worthwhile. One way to do this is to find out how much compensation you could be awarded for the harm you’ve suffered, if your claim is successful.
If you’d like to know how much compensation you could obtain, with help from a personal injury solicitor in Horton, we may be able to help.
Accident Advice Helpline has a 30-second test which is a quick and easy way to find out just how much compensation you could be awarded and, as it takes your injuries into account, it provides an accurate estimate of future possible compensation awards.
