    Looking for an expert lawyer in Scotscraig

    Picture this scenario – you are enjoying a game of golf in the Scotscraig area of Scotland. It is a beautiful autumn morning and the game is going well. So well in fact, that you win the game and start to make your way back to the club house.

    Just as you are about to leave the fairway, disaster strikes. You are struck in the eye by a golf ball. You suffer excruciating pain and are bundled in the back of a car and are taken to the nearest Accident and Emergency Department. There you are diagnosed with a serious eye injury and have to undergo major surgery. The doctors are not sure whether you will ever fully regain the sight in that eye. You work as a dentist in your own practice and start to lose a huge amount of money because you cannot work. You obviously cannot treat patients if you cannot see properly.

    Getting help for an accident

    This type of accident would be categorised as an expert lawyer in Scotscraig accident because it happened in the Scotscraig area and it is the sort of injury that an injury lawyer would deal with.

    These are injuries that were suffered in accidents that were not the injured person’s fault. If your lawyer can show that the accident was someone else’s fault then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. This is when you claim money from the person who was at fault. In the case of the accident above, this may be the company running the golf club. There may have been procedures that they should have put in place to stop this sort of accident happening.

    When it comes to making a compensation claim your first thought may be to seek the help of a local injury lawyer in Scotscraig. However, in many circumstances you are better off using the services of a national provider like Accident Advice Helpline. Their service offers many benefits that a local injury lawyer in Scotscraig cannot compete with.

    Preventing golfing injury cases

    The majority of golf clubs prevent accidents and prevent golfing injury cases by thoroughly risk assessing the way that the golf club is run. This includes a risk assessment of the fairway and a thorough analysis of the types of incidents that could occur. One of the obvious hazards is being struck by stray golf balls and some procedures like warning notices and protected pathways may have to be put in place to minimise the likelihood of an accident happening.

    There are other hazards that may also be present on golf courses and they can include:

    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Clubhouse accidents
    • Machinery accidents
    • Exposure to chemicals
    • Golf buggy accidents

    A thorough risk assessment will help to protect both the clients at the golf club and the employees that work there.
