Newhaven is a town in East Sussex, with a harbour that is both for cargo and passengers as there are regular ferry services to mainland Europe. In August 2013 protesters in Newhaven hit the headlines, as they had a picnic on a beach which has been designated the village green. The problem is that the beach is owned by the French owners of Newhaven Port and Properties. They say that the beach should remain closed for safety reasons, and there are signs up warning of the dangers of going on the beach. This means that if anyone had an accident there and was injured, the owners of the beach would not be liable for payment of any personal injury compensation claims.
There are probably injury solicitors in Newhaven, although you may not find the services of the type of specialist injury solicitor you require. If that is the case, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers, at any time; the numbers can be found below.

If you cut yourself on broken glass on a public beach, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against the owners (possibly the local authority). Beaches should be free of glass, used syringes and so on and the owners are responsible for cleaning them. You would need the services of a firm of injury solicitors as they would have to research exactly who is responsible for the upkeep and cleanliness of the beach in question.Open Claim Calculator
