    Accident solicitor in Dounby

    How you could end up needing an accident solicitor in Dounby

    Dounby is a village in Orkney in the north of Scotland on the A986 road. It is easy to believe that nothing could ever happen in a quiet village such as this.

    We could believe that accidents stay firmly in the past and that today we are on top of the health and safety game. Throw an agricultural show into the equation and we have to think again.

    Dounby has an annual agricultural show in August so you could find yourself visiting that whilst going to Orkney in the summer. Nothing can quite beat the excited air of anticipation of an agricultural show. It is the time when the rural community gets together and shows off their talents, whether it be their exceptional crafts or the result of the glorious beasts they have tenderly looked after.

    Main ring events are a hive of beasts, machines and weapons

    The main ring events are always the highlight of any agricultural show. We can watch show jumping, bicycle stunt teams, quad bike agility courses, shooting competitions, pet competitions and the unbelievable things which people can get ferrets to do. In other words, an agricultural show is a hive of beasts, machines and weapons.

    So what if you are innocently going about your business and admiring the strength and coats of the cattle which are being shown in the main ring when someone accidentally sets a gun off? If the cattle are spooked and the arena is weak at one part, you could suddenly find yourself in what might seem like an old Western on television. The difference would be that this would be real and heavy cattle charging can do irreparable damage to you, to say the least.
