The Inner Hebrides are located off the west coast of mainland Scotland. Colonsay is an island just south of Mull, and it covers only a little over 15 square miles. Needless to say, it does not have a large population. One source reveals that only 124 people live there. As you can imagine, it may be challenging to find certain services on the island that you would probably take for granted if you lived elsewhere.
The search for injury lawyers in Colonsay
Finding injury lawyers in Colonsay in the event you suffered an injury, for example, is straight forward with Accident Advice Helpline. Hopefully you would never need to do this, but if you live and work on the island, there could potentially be a chance you may find yourself in this position at some point in the future.
Injuries in the workplace
The Health and Safety at Work Act was brought in back in 1974. Since then, the number of accidents occurring in the workplace have been reduced by a drastic amount. This is great news, as it means far fewer people suffer accidents, whether resulting in minor or serious injuries, than was previously the case.
Of course, things can still sometimes go wrong. While there are cases where people suffer injuries because of something they did or didn’t do, there are also isolated instances where the employer is to blame for something that happens to the employee. This could be because of a lack of training, or perhaps an inability to provide workers with the proper protective equipment they need to do a good and safe job.
You will need to meet a few basic conditions before you start:
- Was the accident someone else’s fault?
- Did it happen in the last 3 years?
- Did your injury receive medical attention?
If you meet these stipulations, you are ready to start your personal injury compensation claim journey with Accident Advice Helpline or injury lawyers in Colonsay.
