Compensation for injuries sustained on a sailing boat

Sailing is a popular activity that many people like to partake in, especially those who love to something involving the water and if you like a very hands-on experience then a sailing boat could be just what you are looking for. Often seen as quite an old-fashioned approach to water transport (compared to the more modern powerboats), sailing can be a great way to rest, relax and really soak up the atmosphere on an holiday.

Unfortunately however, sailing boats also have the potential to be dangerous, and if you don’t take the right precautions then you could find yourself involved in a sailing boat accident with serious repercussions. As a result, you may look to make a compensation claim to cover any potential costs that you have incurred.

Where could I be injured on a sailing boat?

Although sailing boats are relatively safe, there are situations where you could potentially incur an injury as a result of using one. Some common examples of where this could happen include:

  • Claims against a poor trainer
  • Claims for trips, slips and falls on a sailing boat
  • Claims for faulty sailing boat equipment
  • Claims for a poorly constructed sailing boat
  • Claims against another water user.

Who could I potentially claim against?

In general if you are involved in an accident of this type there are a number of people who you could look to make a claim against, and if you feel that you have been the victim of negligence then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence anymore. You could look to claim against anyone who has caused negligence towards you and you could claim for any costs that you have incurred.
