Pittenweem is a small fishing village in Scotland, where there are many small caves. The name means “The Place of the Caves” and the most important cave in the area is that of Saint Fillan, the patron saint of the mentally ill. The cave has been used by hermits, as well as smugglers in the past, and local fishermen for storage, and has a spring and well.
Fishing is still carried out in Pittenweem, and as this is a dangerous occupation, it is possible that you might have been injured in an accident at sea and be currently looking for a firm of expert injury solicitors in Pittenweem. If there are none in the village, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will try to put you in contact with an expert injury solicitor who can help you file a personal injury compensation claim, while working on a no-win, no fee basis.
Expert injury solicitors in Pittenweem
Expert injury solicitors in Pittenweem or elsewhere, can help you file a personal injury compensation claim if they believe that you have good grounds on which to base one. You have to be able to prove that you were in no way responsible for the accident. You can usually have an appointment free of charge so that you can discuss your potential claim. By the end of the appointment the injury solicitor should be able to tell you whether or not you have a basis for building a case.
You generally have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your claim. However if your accident occurred at sea, you may only have two years in which to make the claim for your injuries. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline, or with a firm of injury solicitors in Pittenweem, or ones based elsewhere, to find out how long you have in which to file your claim.
Claiming for an illness
You can also make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury solicitors in Pittenweem, for example, could prove was the result of someone else’s negligence. The other person might be your employer, for example, if you have been diagnosed with either a work-related illness or an occupational disease. You have three years from the date of the first diagnosis in which to file your personal injury compensation claim.
