Accidents happen every day that is just an unfortunate fact of life. Whilst the majority of the time we can all simply act in a safe manner to prevent accidents sometimes that is not enough as another person’s actions can impact on us.
In other words one person’s wrongful actions or neglect can cause an accident which causes a totally innocent person to get hurt. If this has happened to you then you are an accident victim, should turn to a solicitor in Cheddar via Accident Advice Helpline to help provide you with legal aid.

Whilst there might not been much surfing going on in Cheddar or the surrounding areas many of the locals love to indulge in a spot of surfing whilst away on holiday.
For many people all over the world surfing is an extremely enjoyable sport. It is easy to see why so many people love it with the feel of beautiful sands and clear blue waters, the view of the sunny sky and not to mention the thrill of riding the waves. Many people say it really is a simply unforgettable experience. Some people travel abroad specifically to surf and nothing else. However the negative side to all this is that surfing is a major cause of accidents on holiday.
It is important to be safe when surfing. Here are some of Accident Advice Help line’s top tips to stay safe when surfing:
- Follow all local laws at the beach you visit. Different beaches maintain different sets of laws regarding surfing zones and surfing near jetties etc. Always check with a lifeguard if you are unsure about the local laws and beach laws of the particular area you are visiting.
- Wear a board leash. On many beaches, the law requires you to wear a board leash, but even if you are in an area where this is not compulsory a leash is a great way of keeping your board close to you and prevents it from causing an accident to other fellow surfer.
- Always aid a fellow surfer if they get into trouble in the water. In the event that you are unable to help, contact a lifeguard immediately.
- Never surf in conditions above your ability. If you are a beginner, avoid surfing in crowded areas whilst you are learning.
- Always be aware of where other surfers are. It can help you to determine whether or it is not safe to paddle into a wave.
If you have already been involved in a surfing accident then you could make an accident compensation claim and seek cash compensation for your injuries. An in-house solicitor in Cheddar at Accident Advice Helpline will be more than happy to help you.
