    Unexpected accident on Bassenthwaite Lake


    Bassenthwaite Lake is one of the largest water bodies in the English Lake District. It is long and narrow, approximately 4 miles long and 3⁄4-mile wide. However, it is also extremely shallow, with a maximum depth of about 70 feet. Yet, that is still a significant water depth should someone find themselves in trouble on the lake.

    An unexpected accident on Bassenthwaite Lake that is not the victim’s fault

    The A66 dual carriageway runs roughly north/south along the western side of the lake. The lay-bys are popular spots for photographers and bird watchers looking for osprey. However, occasionally accidents can occur if people are not careful around the lake. As well as this, a lack of health and safety measures around the lake can contribute to an unexpected accident on Bassenthwaite Lake that is not the victim’s fault.

    If you have been involved in such an incident and have been injured as a result, you may require the help of a good injury claim specialist in order to claim compensation. Whatever the severity of injury you may have sustained, if your injury required medical treatment, and the incident took place in the last 3 years, you will have an excellent chance of being entitled to injury compensation.
