Injuries can happen anywhere at any time, but the last place you expect them to happen is when you are travelling to your favourite holiday destination. This could be to the picturesque west central Lowlands of Scotland and the village of Kilmacolm.

Making an injury claim in Kilmacolm for travel accidents
So, what kinds of injuries could you acquire if you’re travelling? Well, it all depends on the way in which you travel:
- By car – Usually these accidents are very severe, because when people are driving for a long time on country roads, they tend to go very fast. These types of accidents may result in head trauma, broken bones, or for some unlucky people even death.
- By train – A train derailment is probably one of your worst nightmares, and should this happen you may be looking at injuries including broken bones, scrapes and cuts, as well as burns if the train happens to catch fire.
- By plane – We all hope to stay safe up in the skies, but if something goes wrong you may be looking at serious spinal injuries and broken bones. The impact of a plane hitting an obstacle or the ground, is massive, and you will be lucky to even survive.
- By ship – Travelling on the water is usually quite safe, but there are times when not everything goes according to plan. If this happens to you, you may be looking at internal injuries caused by swallowing salt water or injuries caused from the impact of the boat hitting an obstacle.
