Portsmouth is a beautiful town located on the South Coast of the UK that attracts a large number of families due to the favourable weather conditions. The hot summers make it the perfect location for sailing and other water-based activities. Unfortunately, last year a large number of claims were made for accidents that happened in and around the water. These accidents took place throughout the entire year but were noticeably higher in the summer months.
Last year, the types of accidents that took place and required personal injury lawyers in Portsmouth related to the following:
- Boats capsizing in high winds
- Boats exceeding the speed limit, especially further out to sea
- Food poisoning aboard a boat or cruise liner
- Slips, falls and trips on and off boats
- Water sport accidents
The numerous injuries that resulted included:
- Back injuries
- Ligament damage
- Head injuries
- Gastric illnesses
- Broken bones
As long as you were not responsible for your accident you may be able to receive compensation for your injury. For further information about whether you qualify to receive compensation you should contact a specialist to advise you further as the exact conditions can be quite complicated.
