Injured in an accident out at sea
If you have been injured in an accident out at sea whilst in the course of your job then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Pembroke Dock if the accident was not your fault and happened within the last three years. Injuries sustained whilst at sea are harder to deal with especially if you are far from land and as such extra care should be taken to ensure that all aspects of health and safety and first aid are up to par.
Whilst on a vessel with other fishermen for example there should always be at least one (depending on the size of the vessel and crew size) to administer first aid whilst making the journey back to shore or waiting for the lifeguard or medical assistance to arrive. If your employer fails in this regard and your injuries are heightened as a result then you may well be eligible for compensation.
