The closure of the artificial surfing reef back on 4th April 2011, in Boscombe, Bournemouth, means that AAH are not likely to be asked to launch claims for injuries it could have caused. Of course, with the three year statute of limitations still in force regarding injury claims, any claim yet to be launched still has a little time to appear
Artificial Reef Closed Through Health and Safety Concerns
When the artificial reef first opened back in 2009, it was the first of its kind in Europe. But fears about the health and safety aspect of the structure resulted in its closure some two years later. There were concerns that it could create vicious undercurrents, and that surfers could be sucked into gaps that had begun to appear in the reef’s surface. The reef, which was installed 750 feet offshore, wasn’t the success that was hoped anyway, because many surfers said that it simply produced the wrong types of waves.
No Win No Fee in Boscombe
According to the last set of figures issued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the annual number of fatal water related incidents was 420, 52% of which happened on inland waterways such as canals, lakes, reservoirs and rivers. Here at AAH we’ve handled many water related injury claims, so if you are considering launching such a claim, we can allocate you a specialist solicitor within our network who has the necessary experience and expertise to be of assistance.
What You Will Need to Launch a No Win No Fee in Boscombe Claim
The first thing you must appreciate before you can consider applying for financial compensation with regard to any water related injury, is that the blame for the accident or incident that caused the injury, must lie with someone other than the injury victim. The incident must also have occurred within the last three years, and there must be medical proof regarding the nature of the injury. Given that these three important factors can be correctly addressed, then AAH can launch a no win no fee in Boscombe claim on your behalf.
