Compensation Solicitors in Newton Stewart


Despite its name, Newton Stewart is not one of the towns founded after 1946 under the New Towns Act. It was begun in the mid-17th century and granted Burgh status by Charles II. Newton Stewart is generally regarded as “The Gateway to Gallway” and offers sports’ enthusiasts a range of activities, including angling on the banks of the River Cree, and onshore and offshore sea fishing. In season there is deer stalking and the nearby activities centre provides you with opportunities to go mountain balling, or kayaking or water-skiing. With so many activities to choose from, unfortunately accidents do sometimes occur; that being the case, you may be looking for a firm of compensation solicitors in Newton Stewart.

Compensation solicitors in Newton Stewart

If you are seeking the services of compensation solicitors in Newton Stewart or elsewhere, you may have been injured in an accident which you can prove was no fault of yours. If the accident occurred within the British Isles, you have three years to file a personal injury compensation claim. This is also the case if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.

However, if you were injured in an accident which occurred at sea, at an airport, or in the air, you only have two years in which to file your personal injury compensation claim. If you are in any doubt about how long you have in which to file your particular claim, contact compensation solicitors in Newton Stewart, or others based elsewhere, such as Accident Advice Helpline.

Claiming for accidents or illnesses that happened abroad

If you have booked a package holiday abroad through a UK tour operator, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the tour operator. For example, if you fell in the hotel or its grounds, perhaps because you slipped on a floor that was too highly polished, or you tripped over a piece of broken paving, you may be able to prove that the negligence of the hotel owner or the staff had caused your injury. The hotel owner, staff and the holiday representative are legal representatives of the UK tour operator.

You should inform your holiday representative if you have an accident and have it reported to the tour operator. Ask to have a copy of the report sent to the tour operator.

You can also claim for food poisoning if you ate at the hotel and were subsequently ill. Ask fellow-guests if they also suffered from it and make a joint claim against the UK tour operator on your return to the UK.
