The beautiful Tummel Bridge on the banks of Loch Tummel in Scotland makes a scenic spot for tourists and locals enjoying a peaceful walk. It is not, perhaps, the scene you would expect to endure an accident, but unfortunately accidents do happen in areas such as this that attract those seeking a nature stroll.
Some of the most common accidents to result in an injury claim in Tummel Bridge are slips, trips and falls that often occur in the area. Of course, if you have taken a fall due to your own lack of caution, then it is something you need to chalk up to experience. However, on many occasions people suffer accidents that were not their fault, due to uneven footpaths, negligence in the maintenance of steps and walls and even overgrown plant life can cause undue injury. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury.
If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident in Tummel Bridge that required you to seek medical attention, and the accident wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to compensation. If your injury occurred in the last three years in Tummel Bridge and you have not tried to claim before, take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible to make an injury claim in Tummel Bridge. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:
- A fall on a broken pavement

The local council is responsible for ensuring that Tummel Bridge is a safe place for you to live and enjoy the local life. If you are badly injured in a slip, trip or fall, you should seek medical attention immediately so that your injuries are officially recorded and gather statements from any witnesses so you can use them as evidence when seeking compensation. You should also photograph the scene of your accident if at all possible to add further weight to your claim.
