If you can prove that somebody else is negligent for your accident, then you could make an injury claim
Ullswater is the second largest lake in the English Lake District. At 14.5km long, the lake is very popular with tourists of all kinds. The shore of the lake is a favourable spot for picnicking hikers and families with children who wish to paddle. Five ‘steamer’ boats transverse the lake, carrying sightseers and day-trippers. The lake is a very popular site for yachting, with sailing marinas dotted all around the shore. There are also facilities for diving, rowing and motorboating on Ullswater.
With all these fun leisure pursuits it is easy to forget that there is often an element of risk involved. Unfortunately accidents can and do happen to people when they very least suspect it, leading to physical injuries, and ruining holidays and leisure time. If you have been involved in an accident whilst on holiday, or whilst carrying out a sporting activity, then you could be entitled to make an injury claim in Ullswater. If your accident took place with the last 3 years, and if you can show that somebody else is to blame, then you could be due compensation.
You will need to prove that somebody else, or an organisation, had a duty of care to maintain your safety when the accident took place. So for example if you have been injured whilst undertaking a diving lesson, then it could be your diving instructor that is responsible for your safety.
If you have tripped over an obstruction whilst on a boat trip, then you could argue that the boat company is at fault. If you can show that the actions of somebody else has led to your injury taking place, or if they have not paid due attention to hazards and their prevention, then you can make an injury claim in Ullswater.
