Solicitors in Lechlade


Tourists sometime seek out solicitors in Lechlade when they’ve sustained an injury following a boating accident they’ve been involved with on the Thames.

The dangers of boating

Going for a jaunt on the river is a popular pastime here in Lechlade; the highest navigable point on the Thames. But unless you know what you’re doing, it could be fraught with danger, which is why the Association of Inland Navigation Authority, produces a publication entitled “Good practice guide – Managing Inland Waterways Safety Risks.”

Drowning statistics for the year 2010

According to figures shown on the RoSPA website for  the year 2010,  there were a total of 420 water related deaths. Of the 420, 217 related to the U.K.’s inland waterways; including canals, lakes, lochs, ponds, rivers and reservoirs.

Safety tips, when messing about on the river or any other waterway

In terms of health and safety on our inland waterways, here’s some tips to help keep you safe:

  • Always wear buoyancy jackets
  • Be vigilant and keep an eye on children at all times
  • Do not jump from a moving boat
  • Do not sit at the front of the deck of a day boat
  • Do not try to stop a boat by pushing with your hand or your full
  • Never steer towards anyone in the water, propeller first

Telling the solicitors in Lechlade or Accident Advice Helpline who is to blame for your injury

In order to be able to claim compensation for any injury you sustain, whether that injury is through a boating accident, or anything other type of incident, the single most important consideration is that the blame for the incident that created the injury must be down to someone other than the injury victim. There’s other criteria your solicitor will need to know, whether its solicitors in Lechlade, Accident Advice Helpline, or someone entirely different; we all work to the same rulebook: You’ll need to confirm:

  • The injury has happened within the past three years
  • The nature of the injury, or its consequences, is serious enough to justify the raising of a claim
  • If you have medical proof to substantiate the nature and severity of the injury

How much is your claim worth?

The first thing most people want to know when they are considering whether or not to raise a claim for compensation is how much their claim might amount to. The simplest way to find this out is to go to our website, and find the HOW MUCH calculator. If you then supply the information the calculator requests, by clicking on the drop down boxes and selecting the most suitable answers, the calculator will verify the validity of your claim in principal, and will then provide you with an estimate as to how much your claim could be worth. The whole process takes only 30 seconds.
