It is highly unlikely that you will find injury lawyers in Inveruglas on the small island in Loch Lomond called Inveruglas. However, it is possible that you suffered an injury while on a boat travelling to the island which was once the stronghold of the chiefs of the Clan MacFarlane.
You might have visited the isle Inveruglas to visit the castle there. There is also the small village of Inveruglas on the shores of Loch Lomond, of course. If you have had an accident in Inveruglas and you can prove that you were not to blame for it, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if the accident happened within the last three years.
However, if your accident occurred at sea (although not on a loch), in the air or at an airport anywhere in the world, more or less, you have to file a personal injury claim within two years of the date of the accident.

Accidents on boats
If you travel across a Scottish loch on board a ferry boat, there is always a danger of slipping on a wet deck. This is true if you are aboard any type of ship or boat. Normally decks have an anti-slip coating which lowers the risk of such accidents. You should also hold the handrail when on any boat or ship as it is there for your safety.
Another common accident that occurs on ships and boats is being hit by a falling object. All objects should be stowed away and properly secured to avoid such accidents occurring. Failure to stow an object away securely may be the result of negligence on the part of a crew member.
If you work on a boat, you know that all equipment should be put in its allotted place when it is not in use. Accidents occur, especially when visibility is poor, if items of equipment are left on deck and not put away.
