If you’ve been involved in some sort of accident on the River and sustain an injury, then AAH’s injury claim solicitors might be able to process a claim on your behalf for financial compensation. The only thing is that the blame for the accident/incident has to lie with a third party.
Where There’s Water There’s Danger
Bourne end in Buckinghamshire sits on the River Thames not far from Maidenhead and is a real centre of activity as far as the River is concerned. People come here for boating and also to enjoy picnics alongside the towpath on bright summer days. But water spells danger, and often, these escapades, on or beside the river, end up with someone being injured, and if that injury is the fault of someone else, then the injured person may be entitled to chase after some financial compensation with a no win no fee in Bourne End claim.
No Win No Fee in Bourne End Claim
Messing about on the river is far more dangerous than many people give it credit for. According to the last set of figures issued by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), there were 420 fatal water related injuries in the UK in 2012. Over 50% of these incidents occurred on inland waterways including rivers. There are no official figures for non-fatal water related injuries, but estimates would put these in their thousands.
Many relate to things like the hiring of narrow-boats on the U.K.’s network of canals, whereby a piece of equipment fails or malfunctions, causing injury. In such cases, the hire company may well be liable to pay damages, and AAH, as one of the top personal injury law firms, may be able to help you to obtain any compensation you may be due.
3 Important Things to Consider
There are three important things you must establish in order to be able to raise a legitimate personal injury claim.
- The cause of the accident/injury must be down to a third party.
- The accident/injury must have taken place within the last three years
- Medical proof of the injury will be required
If all three points can be successfully addressed, then you not only have a legal right to pursue compensation, but a moral right too.
