Shipwrecks off the Farne Islands
Many primary school children are introduced to the Farne Islands through the story of Grace Darling and the wreck of the Forfarshire. Grace Darling was the daughter of a lighthouse-keeper and she bravely helped her father to rescue nine people in a strong gale and thick fog from the wreck of the Forfarshire in 1838. Sadly, this was not the only ship wreck recorded in the area. Hundreds of ships have been wrecked in the Farne Islands area over the years, providing plenty of interesting sites for divers to look at. This explains why this is such a popular scuba diving location.
Diving is a potentially hazardous activity and very stringent safety precautions have to be followed at all times. If this has not been done and someone has been injured then they may be able to make a claim for compensation against the person that was at fault. This may be the dive organiser. The legal professional that would help with a diving claim in this area would be a personal injury solicitor.
What can cause a diving injury?
The organiser of the dive could have been responsible for your diving injury in a number of ways. The most obvious is that they may have not planned the dive properly because they did not have a safe system of diving worked out. Other accidents happen because everyone was not made aware of the plan. The accident may have been caused by human error and this may be because no-one was supervising the dive or because the supervisors were not experienced enough. Safe diving depends on safe equipment and rigorous equipment checks should be a feature of any dive.
