Solicitors in Coniston


Coniston is a village in Cumbria close to Coniston Water, which is the third largest lake in the Lake District. Sir Malcolm Campbell and his son Donald set many world water speed records on Coniston Water, ending in 1967 when Donald was killed there after losing control of his Bluebird K7.

Today, you can hire kayaks, canoes and larger vessels to explore Coniston Water at a more leisurely pace than the Campbells did. There is a speed limit on the lake of 10 mph.

Water sports accidents

In a report commissioned by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) in 2013, there was this statement: “39% of recorded deaths by accidents happen as a result of water sports accidents.” It seems that accidents on inland waterways, such as Coniston Water, canals and rivers, are more dangerous than the sea, as far as fatal accidents are concerned.

Water-related accidents can be minor or have life-changing effects. The World Health Organization (WHO) has listed the most common types of accidents in water. These are:-

  • Drowning or near-drowning;
  • Impact injuries resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia, or head injuries ranging from concussion to amnesia and loss of motor skills;
  • Slips, trips and falls which can lead to permanent disabilities; and
  • Cuts and other wounds.

Solicitors in Coniston

If you have been injured in a water sports accident, or any other type of accident, you must be able to prove that you were not to blame for it if you are to have a successful personal injury compensation claim. Solicitors in Coniston, or anywhere else, can help build a case to show that you were an innocent victim of an accident. If you have been involved in a jet ski accident, for example, you would have to prove that the person on the jet ski with whom you collided was acting recklessly or negligently.

Although you normally have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim, that isn’t always true. There are some accidents and their resulting injuries for which you must make a claim within a shorter space of time. You need to contact solicitors in Coniston, or us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long it is before the expiry date for your claim is up.

Solicitors in Coniston could also help you to build a case to prove that an illness with which you have been diagnosed has been caused as a result of another person’s negligence.
