Are you looking for injury lawyers in Ecclefechan following an accident? If your accident took place within the last three years and was caused by someone else, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience in the field and we’ve already helped thousands of people to make successful claims.
Injured in a ferry accident
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we help people to make successful claims for compensation following all kinds of accidents. The common ones are road traffic accidents, work-related accidents and slips, trips and falls. However, we also specialise in dealing with those that are less common, including accidents that occur on ferries.
For some people, ferry trips are part of days out or holidays, while for others they are part of everyday life. Those living on islands off the coast of Scotland, for instance, regularly make trips to the mainland for work, commerce and social activities. The same is also true for reverse trips by mainlanders.
Injury lawyers in Ecclefechan
Ferry accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Poor maintenance of the vessel can lead to breakdowns and risk to passengers. Human error can cause accidents, for example, if the ferry is going too fast or pulls into harbour recklessly or carelessly. There are also health and safety rules that govern a ferry, just the same as apply in the workplace, or in public places.
If you were injured while travelling on a ferry and believe that it was someone else who caused the accident, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation using injury lawyers in Ecclefechan. You could have a claim against the ferry operator, the crew or another passenger, depending on how the accident was caused.
