The small town and civil parish of Innerleithen lies in Tweeddale in the Scottish Borders. With a population of 2,586, the town is surrounded on all sides by hills and has a rich history dating back thousands of years. Here for 10 days every July, the St Ronans Borders Games takes place, the oldest organised sporting event in Scotland, attracting thousands of visitors from across the country. Whether you’ve been injured whilst attending an even or been hurt in another type of accident, there’s no need to rely on local injury lawyers in Innerleithen to handle your claim. Accident Advice Helpline has helped people across the area to claim compensation for injuries, and we could help you too, provided it has been three years or less since your accident happened.
Why do you need injury lawyers in Innerleithen?
You may need to hire an injury lawyer if you have been injured in an accident which was caused by somebody else. Some examples of the type of accident we mean include things like tripping on damaged flooring in a local shop or being injured in an industrial accident at work. But you don’t need injury lawyers in Innerleithen to handle your claim when you could trust Accident Advice Helpline’s professional personal injury lawyers to get you the compensation you deserve. What about if you’ve been injured whilst attending an event in the area?
Event organisers normally take responsibility for the safety of anybody attending an event, so if you have been injured at an event then you can get in touch with us to find out more about making a claim. You could have suffered food poisoning after eating food at an event, sustained crush injuries after being knocked to the ground and trampled or even injured by flying debris during a demonstration or sports event that you were a spectator at.
What about accidents at work?
It may be that you’ve been injured at work in Innerleithen, and if this has happened to you then you have a good chance of making a successful claim, if your employer was to blame. Your employer takes responsibility for the safety of staff whilst they’re at work, which means if something goes wrong, they could be held liable. For example, you could be injured by faulty equipment or defective PPE, trip on damaged flooring at work or sustain injuries in an accident involving heavy machinery. Whatever has happened, if your employer could have done more to prevent your accident from happening, you could have a viable claim.
How can you find out more?
The best thing to do after your accident is to give Accident Advice Helpline a call. We offer confidential, no-obligation advice to anybody who calls our helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile), so you don’t need to feel pressured to proceed with a claim. In fact, many people call us just for advice so that they can decide what they want to do next. You could be entitled to compensation not only for your injuries but also for your financial losses, such as loss of earnings, so it’s well worth getting in touch with us.
