Have you been hurt whilst on a boat?
Although the fishing industry has declined in the United Kingdom, a significant number of people do still work in the sector and many people rely on this type of work to provide an income for them and their families.
As the fishing industry is largely dependent on the weather, workers can face tough times if they are unable to get out to sea and perform their work. Although modern technology has increased the safety of boats and fishing, it is still a relatively dangerous job and fishermen and women can easily be injured or even killed whilst onboard a vessel.
As many people working in the industry are self-employed, if they suffer an injury which affects their ability to work, it can have catastrophic effects on their income and their livelihood. However, if their injury wasn’t their fault and it was caused by someone or something else, there is a chance that they could claim compensation for the harm that they’ve suffered.
