Isle of Arran or Arran is the 7th largest Scottish Island. It is also the largest island in the Firth of Clyde. This island’s main economic activity is tourism. Arran is a popular destination of geologists and it is often referred to as a ‘’geologists paradise’’. There are several villages along the shoreline. The Highland Boundary Fault divides the island into lowland and highland areas.
You may be visiting Isle of Arran on holiday and enjoying your stay there with your family. As you cross the road, an over-speeding car loses control and hits your daughter. The driver did not observe the pedestrian crossing rules, causing an accident. If the injury is serious and there is bleeding then you should call emergency services but if it is minor you can take your daughter to a nearby general physician or clinic.
People who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs overlook safety rules and regulations causing pedestrian injuries and you may then require an experienced solicitor on the Isle of Arran.
Looking for an experienced solicitor on the Isle of Arran?
The first place you may call is Accident Advice Helpline and a legal representative will assess your case and advise you what you should do. In order to be sure that the personal injury claim for compensation will be successful, the claim must be lodged within 3 years of the accident and you should prove that medical attention was sought.
Although we do not have an injury solicitor on the Isle of Arran we can still represent you and your claim. This is because we are a national firm that works across the whole of the UK. So if you need an injury solicitor on the Isle of Arran look no further than our expert service.
An injury solicitor should file a compensation claim against the responsible driver. To make the case sail through, make sure that you have the medical report, photographs of the accident, the police report and other documentation.
In such accidents the driver will be at fault for not adhering to the safety rules and regulations required. However, you need to prove this and your solicitor will advise you because the driver who is the defendant or the insurance company will argue the case in their favour through their lawyer so they can pay a compensation amount that is lower than what you deserve.
- Strains-your daughter may get hurt and you take her to the nearby medical clinic and she is treated for a strain.
- Cuts and grazes-the pedestrian may sustain cuts which may bleed excessively. The bleeding should be controlled by compression and bandaging and in deep cuts stitching under anaesthesia may be necessary. Make sure you notify your solicitor.
- Fractures-when a car crash occurs, the victim is hit on the lower legs, upper legs, may land on the windscreen or on the road surface and get fractures. All these can cause broken joints and bones. Loss of productivity, medical expenses, legal costs and emergency costs are included in the claim.
- Fatalities-in severe road crashes fatalities are reported every year in the UK and elsewhere. The injury solicitor in such cases claims life assurance benefits for the beneficiaries.
