The Castle Moil in Kyleakin, on the Isle of Skye, faces Kyle of Lochalsh on mainland Scotland. It is an impressive ruin, and one can imagine how its owners could control the sea-going vessels which sailed the straits of Loch Alsh. The harbour in Kyleakin is picturesque and is still home to a fishing fleet. Residents of Kyleakin may work at sea, in the tourist industry, or perhaps some engage in agriculture. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today if you’ve been hurt at work in Kyleakin.

Have you been hurt at work in Kyleakin
You may also need injury solicitors in Kyleakin if you have been diagnosed with an illness for which you can prove another person’s negligence is responsible. This might be a work-related illness, for example, in which case you would have to prove that your employer was negligent in their duty to provide workers with a safe and healthy working environment. You have three years from the date of first being diagnosed with the illness in which to make a claim.
When should I file a claim?
You usually have three years from the date of an accident in Britain to file a personal injury compensation claim, but there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, if you had an accident at sea, whether as a crew member or a passenger, you would only have two years in which to file your claim. If you wish to make a claim on behalf of a partner, spouse or child who died in a plane crash, again you would only have two years to file a claim. The same is true if you had an accident on a plane or at an airport.
If you were injured in a violent crime, once again you would only have two years in which to claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
