Blackwaterfoot is a village on the Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. Situated in the South West of the island in the valley of Shiskine it is actually one of the smaller villages on the Isle of Arran but does play host to one of only two 12 hole golf courses in Europe. There are two notable historically significant locations close to the village in the shape of the largest Iron Age fort on Arran at Drumadoon Point, and the King’s Cave which according to legend was the hiding place of Robert the Bruce. Being such a small and relatively remote village you would be right in assuming that for injury lawyers Blackwaterfoot does not create a large number of compensation claims, but it can still produce some claims all the same.
Injury Lawyers Blackwaterfoot
The fact that for injury lawyers Blackwaterfoot is not a common source for claims but can still produce them actually does help to demonstrate an important point about compensation in general. This is the fact that for injury lawyers Blackwaterfoot and other smaller villages and rural areas are still just as important when it comes to making a claim, for the simple fact that accidents and injuries can occur anywhere, and victims still deserve to be able to claim compensation. All of this in combination therefore, means that wherever a potential claimant may live they will benefit from the vital information about the claims process which follows in the rest of this article.
When and Why is Compensation Available?
The law states that if you fall ill or suffer an injury and it was demonstrably somebody else’s fault, then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation as a result. This compensation in turn is awarded as a means of providing some measure of recompense for the victim for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that they have suffered.
How Long Do You Have to Claim?
In the majority of cases you must begin claims proceedings within three years of the incident in question and if you do not then your entitlement to claim unfortunately elapses. The only types of cases which are exempt from this, and all other time limits are those claims which deal with injuries to minors and those which regard industrial diseases like asbestos poisoning.
