Do your family need to make South Oxfordshire unexpectedinjury claims after a boating accident?
Although the county of Oxfordshire isn’t particularly near to the coast, it is still popular with boating enthusiasts. The picturesque location, with the River Thames running through it, means that there is plenty of opportunity to get out on the water if you choose to.
The iconic annual Boat Race involving teams from the University of Cambridge and the University of Oxford takes place fairly near to South Oxford which means that many rowers train in and around the area.
With plenty of opportunity to hire or rent boats for use on the river, you don’t even have to own or be an experienced skipper in order to take to the water. However, if you are considering hiring a boat, you may want to take full instructions, or even lessons, before you set sail. Whilst many families enjoy holidays and minibreaks on the River Thames, it’s important to put safety first and ensure that no-one is in any unnecessary danger.
Unfortunately, it isn’t always possible to avoid an accident from occurring, even if you’re an experienced sailor. If something is wrong with the vessel, you may find it impossible to stop someone from getting hurt as a result.
If you’ve hired a boat and find that someone is hurt because it malfunctions, you may be able to make South Oxfordshire unexpected injury claims against the people who own it or the rental firm. As they are responsible for the maintenance of the vessel, if it has caused someone to suffer an injury, you could potentially make successful South Oxfordshire unexpected injury claims against them.
Of course, this isn’t the only way that an accident can occur on water. Just like roads, there are rules to how boats can move in the water and in which direction they can travel. If someone else collides with your boat and causes you to suffer an injury, you may also be able to make South Oxfordshire unexpected injury claims against them and you could go on to obtain compensation from them.
