    Accident Solicitor in Eyemouth


    The small border town of Eyemouth in Berwickshire looks across to Scotland and is located just 8 miles north of Berwick-upon-Tweed, an area of bleak but outstanding natural beauty. High, forbidding cliffs overhanging sandy coves and foaming waters, small fishing harbours and rocks mark the Berwickshire coastline, a haven for sea birds and mecca for walkers.

    Every year, Eyemouth holds its famous Herring Queen Festival and it is still obvious in the layout of the old part of the town that the twin industries that sustained Eyemouth in the past were fishing and smuggling. The narrow streets reveal the old town to be a former fishing village but the tiny secluded coves dotted along the coast and their secret tunnels leading up to the town above, mark Eyemouth out as a smugglers’ hideout. Today it is no longer the fishing industry or smuggling contraband that employs locals – it is tourism that sustains the community of Eyemouth today.

    There are camping grounds and B&Bs, a few hotels and a holiday park in the area. Tourists come here for the fishing, the bird-watching and walking mainly, but the area also attracts divers. Diving accidents are not uncommon and are in the main down to human error, badly judged ability or bad weather conditions suddenly setting in.

    If a diving instructor didn’t do his or her job, however, this can have fatal consequences for the novice diver. The wrong oxygen mix in the aqualung or heading for depth in a dive spot that is far too ambitious for a beginner can all contribute to serious accidents.

    An accident solicitor in Eyemouth or other legal specialist will explain what is and what isn’t a non-fault accident and if you qualify for claiming compensation for your injuries.
