The town of Gourock lies on the Firth of Clyde in Renfrewshire, in the west central Lowlands of Scotland, and was in the past mainly a seaside resort. Today the town is mainly regarded as a dormitory, a popular residential area with its own railway link and ferry services across the Firth.
Walkers venturing up on Lyle Hill have a marvellous view over Cardwell Bay and Gourock Bay to look forward to. If you were a member of the Royal Gourock Yacht Club and strolled along to the pier head, tripping over defective paving stones and breaking your wrist in the fall, you could make an injury claim in Gourock against the local authority responsible for the maintenance and repairs of the pavement.
At present only a fraction of genuine non-fault accident victims make personal injury claims. TV presenter Esther Rantzen, who is not only one of the nation’s most recognisable consumer rights champions and Childline supporters, but also the patron for Accident Advice Helpline, a compensation provider and law firm with more than a decade of experience in winning personal injury claims, believes more people should make a claim to help them speed up their recovery process. The feeling of justice having been done goes a long way to helping seriously injured people with their fate.
Although many people find the “compensation culture” that has plagued insurers since the 1990s quite distasteful, non-fault accident victims are entitled to be compensated for their pain and suffering, their loss of income and any expenses they might have incurred because somebody else was negligent, uncaring and didn’t take their duty of care seriously.
Why should an accident victim or a victim of criminal injuries not be helped financially? They will have to live with the trauma of their accident for a long time – and if there injuries were severe, their suffering and loss of income might even be life-long.
If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault and your accident in Gourock happened within the last 3 years, you may have a valid claim for compensation. Speak to a few accident solicitors before going ahead with an injury claim in Gourock. You need a specialist just right for your particular claim, or you won’t be receiving the maximum compensation.
