    The role of a personal injury lawyer in Christchurch in camp site claims

    Getting the help of a personal injury lawyer in Christchurch means that you will get help with showing who was at fault for the accident in which you were hurt. You will get the legal support that is needed to prove that someone was at fault and then to negotiate a sum of money in compensation. So what causes accidents on camp sites? Here are a few potential hazards that could arise on any camp site and could cause accidents if they are not managed properly:

    • Fire is a real hazard on campsites, there is plenty of combustible materials (caravans and tents) and plenty of sources of ignition. The main way of controlling this hazard is by adequately separating units and this may mean banning the use of decking between units which is becoming increasingly popular. Sheds and other combustible structures should not be placed within the area separating units. It also greatly helps to keep vegetation cut back and if this is not done it can greatly add to the risk. There should be a clear procedure for fighting fires including the provision of adequate equipment and staff training.
    • Carbon monoxide poisoning has been a high profile hazard on campsites on a number of tragic occasions because people have lost their lives through carbon monoxide poisoning whilst camping. This has been because they have taken something like a BBQ into a tent where there has been insufficient oxygen for complete combustion to take place. Camp site owners can play their part in preventing this by having warning signs – especially close to the area where BBQs are sold.
    • Camp sites have electrical hook up points and these can get damaged which then renders unsafe. Regular inspection and maintenance can deal with this hazard.
