    Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee’ on Tongue fishing cases – responsibility for safety

    There are specific regulations and rules that govern the loading and unloading of fishing vessels. Their purpose is to make this operation as safe as possible. The duty is on the employer and the skipper of the vessel to find out about and to comply with the relevant regulations – these are the people that a personal injury claim would be started against. On the other hand, in the case of an accident that was caused by the condition of the vessel or by unsafe working practices the person or organisation that has control of these may be the subject of the claim. In practice, claims are often paid out of an Employer’s Liability Insurance policy.
