The Isle of Arran is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde. Who would search for injury lawyers on the Isle of Arran? A potential claimant could be a local worker, someone working a contract away from home, a visitor, tourist, or someone who may be researching on behalf of friends or loved ones.
Tourism, farming and forestry are the most important industries in this part of the world. Unfortunately, these sectors rate fairly highly on the potential-for-accident list. Farming is one of the most dangerous commercial sectors in the country for all sorts of reasons. Many workers are injured or killed whilst driving or working agricultural machinery. Normally docile animals can behave unpredictably, especially if they are in the breeding season or protecting their young, or if they have become unwell or stressed. Every year there are cases of farmers being gored by a usually placid bull, or walkers attacked when they have entered a field of cows which resent the intrusion.
Forestry is also demanding and dangerous for operators working with chainsaws and heavy logging machinery. Climbing trees is also hazardous, even if workers have taken all safety precautions such as wearing a harness, head gear and protective goggles.
Any worker is expected to behave responsibly in whatever job with regard to their own safety and that of their colleagues, but if they suffered injuries because the employer had been negligent in some way, then they could have a valid claim for compensation.
