The Isle of Wight is an island – and a county – that sits off the southern coastline of England. It is only around four miles from the mainland, where Hampshire is the nearest area. The Solent is the body of water that sits in between the two. The Isle of Wight has around 139,800 permanent residents, although this number does get considerably larger during the summer months when people arrive to spend their holidays here. It is rare to hear about Isle of Wight claims, since they don’t often occur. But you simply never know what life might have around the corner, do you?
Accidents do happen every day, but very few of us will ever be on the receiving end of injuries that wouldn’t have occurred if someone else hadn’t been negligent. When this does happen, it can be hard to deal with, as you might feel frustrated and angry that you were hurt and there was nothing you could have done to prevent it.
Accidents while on holiday
Lots of places in England – and the whole of the UK – are popular with holidaymakers. The Isle of Wight is one such place. Very few people will end up being injured while on holiday in the UK, but we all know things can happen anytime, and if you’re unlucky, you could be left nursing some injuries while you are on holiday.
You might wonder what on earth could go wrong. Well, road accidents happen all over the place, and although some people go through their entire lives without experiencing one, others are not as lucky. If you stay in a resort or park, you have a right to expect the services and facilities provided to always be safe – and they usually are. Similarly, if you use equipment provided by a company that runs water sports or other sports, you would expect it to be safe and easy to use, and not to harm you.
