Personal Injury Solicitors in Ramsgate


Ramsgate, in Kent, began as a small fishing village and became one of the strategic Cinque Ports. There have been cross-channel ferry services running from the port of Ramsgate for many years. If you are a resident of Ramsgate, you may be searching for a firm of personal injury solicitors in Ramsgate because you have had an accident while on a channel crossing. Of course you may be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Ramsgate for many other reasons, as there are so many accidents that can befall us.

Personal injury solicitors in Ramsgate

If you have been injured in any type of accident which you can prove was not your fault, with the help of personal injury solicitors in Ramsgate, or ones based elsewhere, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, although you have three years to claim for most accidents which occur in the UK, you have a lot less time in which to claim for others, so it is advisable to check with personal injury solicitors in Ramsgate, for example, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have, to make your personal injury compensation claim.

You have three years from the date of the first diagnosis in which to make a claim for an illness which you and your personal injury solicitors in Ramsgate (or ones based close to where you live), can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. This might be, for example, a work-related illness which you may be able to prove was the result of your employer’s negligence.

Accidents on ships and boats

Whether you are a passenger, or a crew member, you have only two years to file a personal injury compensation claim for an accident that happened at sea. There are some common types of accident that can occur on board a sea-going vessel, such as slips, trips or falls, or objects falling from heights.

If you slip and injure yourself on a wet deck, for example, it might be that there was no handrail for you to hold, or perhaps the anti-slip coating had worn away on some places on the deck. If either was the case, you may be able to prove that the owner’s negligence was to blame for the accident and your injuries.

If an object falls, it is likely that it was not properly stowed away and secured, and once again you could prove that negligence on the part of the crew caused the accident.
