Injury lawyers in Tobermory
Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull in Scotland. Legend has it that the wreck of a Spanish galleon laden with gold lies somewhere in the mud at the bottom of Tobermory Bay, although the ship’s true identity and cargo are in dispute. Injury lawyers in Tobermory are well aware of the accidents that happen all over the UK every day, but some of them are more common than others and they have decided to discuss these in more detail.
Road traffic accidents
There were nearly 190,000 reported road traffic accidents on UK roads for the year ending March 2013, with an average of five people a day losing their lives. It is estimated that this figure would more than double if unreported accidents were accounted for, if the number of insurance claims for road accidents is anything to go by.
This data includes accidents for all types of vehicles, from motorbikes to heavy goods vehicles — a combination that could have dire consequences for the motorcyclist. As with all accidents, if you were injured as the result of an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim using personal injury lawyers in Tobermory.
Slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common of all accidents, and they affect large numbers of victims in the UK every year. These sound as though they might produce quite minor injuries, and many do, but what if you slipped on a wet floor and the top of some stairs and went tumbling down them? What if you tripped over a box that had been left in the way and fell into a piece of machinery? What if you fell off some scaffolding from three floors up? If any of these happened to you, the result could be you suffering serious injury.
If your employer fails in their duty to protect the health and safety of their staff while at work, and you are injured because of their negligence, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against them. This does not just apply to one-off accidents, but also to longer-term industrial illnesses and conditions.
