    Making an injury claim in Instow

    Help with making an injury claim in Instow

    You may have been on holiday at Instow or you may live and work in that part of Devon. You may have had an accident while on a boat. You might work on a fishing boat, or a gravel barge, or perhaps you were on a power boat or on a pleasure cruise. You might have had an accident and sustained an injury, so perhaps you are looking up making an injury claim in Instow in the local telephone directory, or perhaps you are propped up in a hospital bed, typing the phrase making an injury claim in Instow into your favourite search engine.

    Boat injuries

    If you hired a boat and were sailing it yourself, you should have received instructions about how to sail it before you cast off. Speedboats and power boats need to be handled with care and kept well away from swimmers and divers. Accidents can cause serious injuries and even fatalities to the passengers on a boat as well as to others in the vicinity.

    If you are on a ferry, then there should be sturdy handrails that are firmly attached to walls or the side of the boat, and you should be careful when on deck as it can be wet and slippery, although ferries are required to have anti-slip floor surfaces. There should be places on board where luggage can be stowed securely. Some injuries on boats occur when a falling object hits a person.

    If you work on board a fishing boat, then you know that this is a dangerous occupation and slips, trips and falls can occur, not only because the deck is wet, but also because equipment was not properly stored after use. Failure to stow equipment and tackle in the designated places can be regarded as negligence in a court of law.

    Those who own boats should ensure that they do not leave shore when weather conditions are dangerous and the boat-owners have a duty to keep their passengers and workers safe. Boats should always be well-maintained and in a good state of repair. Accidents can occur when passengers are embarking and disembarking and crew members should be on hand to assist passengers at these critical times.

    Unfortunately accidents do happen and perhaps you are considering ringing an injury claim Instow lawyer to find out if you have grounds to make a compensation claim for a personal injury after a boating accident.
