The town of Sanquhar in Dumfriesshire sits in the Nith valley, in close proximity to the Carsphairn and Scaur hill range. These hills provide outdoor enthusiasts with the perfect opportunity to enjoy their leisure time in the most picturesque of places. While much of the enjoyment of exploring these hills centres on the freedom and thrills they offer, activities in exposed outdoor areas can be potentially perilous. Both novice and experienced outdoor enthusiasts are susceptible to injuries. However, the vast majority of injuries occur in those who are not used to venturing outdoors. Common injuries sustained include broken limbs and muscle strains and sprains.
Do you need an accident solicitor in Sanquhar?
Of course, you cannot claim compensation for injuries that resulted purely from accidents caused by your own actions. However, you can claim for injuries that resulted from accidents caused by the actions of someone else. To make a compensation claim, it is not necessary for you to have sustained your injuries outdoors – you can make a claim for injuries sustained in your workplace or in a public place.
How can you provide evidence to support your claim?
Following suffering a personal injury, you should retain details of the expenses you have incurred as this will help your accident solicitor in Sanquhar or further afield to determine the value of your compensation claim. You should keep receipts and invoices for all the following expenses:
• Travelling to and from hospital appointments
• Hiring home help
• Hiring childcare
• Buying medical equipment
You should also retain any wage slips that will help you to demonstrate that you have suffered financial losses because of your inability to work.
