Situated on the east coast of Scotland, Methil is near the ‘Largo Bay.’ The region is particularly well known because of the fact that it is one of the pioneering regions in the country when it comes to adopting green energy. The region is roughly 45 miles from Edinburgh and has a population of an estimated 11,000.
Developing the Region of Methil
A great number of people would have been asked to work on developing the region’s status as a pioneer of green energy. This is in part thanks to the fact that there would have been many people and much expertise required to build the wind turbines in the area, for example. The transportation of the components making up the windmill would have required the use of many specialist trucks and tools. Once they reached their destination, these components might have required transportation thanks to the help of manpower.
This of course might have been convenient, though it could have presented some risks and dangers for those doing the heavy lifting. One injury that could have affected the people lifting is a back injury; another injury that may have impacted those doing the lifting is a metatarsal injury. A fractured metatarsal might have occurred as one of the components was dropped on the foot of an individual who was doing the heavy lifting, or was part of a group trying to lift something which was extremely heavy.
A fractured metatarsal can take months from which to recover and can be highly painful, too. This injury could require a lot of time to be spent at home, or in a place where you’re unable to do much at all.
If you suffered an accident at work in Methil in this way, which happened due to reasons that had nothing to do with you, then you’ll be intrigued to know that you might be in line to claim for personal injury compensation.
