If you sustain a boating injury you may need a good lawyer to help, and here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re stood by, ready and waiting.
You cannot claim for self inflicted injuries
Boating for most people is a leisure, or a sporting activity. Any injuries they pick up through the normal physical, routine, activity it involves, would normally be considered as being “self inflicted”, as people know what risks to expect.
No win no fee in Chichester
However, if it’s a piece of equipment that fails and causes an injury, that’s a different matter and it may be possible to launch a no win no fee in Chichester injury claim under product liability law.
Certain things would have to be ascertained, such as making sure that the equipment was being used within specification, and was maintained in good working order; but the lawyer you chose to work with will advise you accordingly.
Injuries to boating professionals
Of course for some people, boating is their profession; they may for example be a crew member. If this is the case, and the crew member in question suffers an injury whereby the blame lies with the skipper or the owner of the boat, the injured person will be entitled to make a no win no fee in Chichester.
3 important considerations
Whenever anyone is considering launching a no win no fee in Chichester personal injury claim, there are three things to be taken into consideration.
- The blame for the accident/injury must be attributable to a third party
- The injury must be severe enough to warrant a compensation claim
- the incident/injury must have occurred within the past three years
If these three points can all be appropriately addressed, then an injury claim can be registered.
Establishing the potential value of your claim
In order to establish how much your potential injury claim could be worth, you should visit Accident Advice Helpline on-line and locate the HOW MUCH calculator that can be found on the homepage.
Simply answer the questions put to you, and you’ll be given an estimate within 30 seconds. If you decide to launch your claim immediately, just click on the green “claim now” button.
An employer should carry employee liability insurance
Bear in mind that all employers should carry employee liability insurance, so in effect it is not your employer, but the insurance company who will make any compensation payments. In other words you’re not endangering the business itself by making a claim.
