You may be able to claim compensation with injury lawyers in Lochgelly
Lochgelly is a small town in Fife, Scotland. It is situated between two Lochs; Loch Ore and Loch Gelly. The town was mainly concerned with mining from the 1830s until the 1960s.
Belts to punish children with
Lochgelly was well known throughout Scotland for making the belts that teachers used to punish children with. This industry thrived until 1979 when it was finished by the fact that fewer schools were ordering the belts.
The town in the 1960s was known as Little Moscow due to the fact that the town, for most of that decade, was represented by members of the Communist party.
Personal injuries galore
In 1874, Mr Andrew Critchon was taking wood from the Lochore Woods with the aid of a horse. Something startled the horse and as it ran off, a large tree fell on Mr Critchon. The tree dislocated his ankle, shattered his foot and badly bruised the rest of his leg.
In 1898, a man named Malcolm McDonald attempted suicide by slitting his throat. The doctors managed to save him, though not for long. He died soon after from blood loss.
In 1906, a Lochgelly man named William Gracie, an ostler by trade, was kicked by one of the horses he was meant to stall and fractured his skull. He was found unconscious and taken to see two medical men to help him recover.
In 1908, a miner named Andrew Costello was fined for attacking a Lochgelly policeman. He kicked him, grabbed him by the neck and attempted to strangle him.
As we can see, injuries happen all the time. If a person commits suicide then it is their own fault and so they cannot claim compensation. However, if you have an accident at work that was someone else’s fault then there is a strong possibility that you will be able to claim compensation with injury lawyers in Lochgelly.
