Injury solicitors in Dingwall


Injury Solicitors in Dingwall

Dingwall is a town in the Highland council area of Scotland. It was formerly an east-coast harbour but now lies inland. Dingwall Castle was once the biggest castle north of Stirling. On the town’s present-day outskirts lies Tulloch Castle, parts of which may date back to the 12th-century building.

In the days when Dingwall was a harbour, there were no doubt sometimes accidents at sea in the area, just as accidents happen at sea now.  They are not much different to accidents on land and if you are injured in one that was not your fault you might want to talk to injury solicitors in Dingwall about making a personal injury claim.

Using the help of injury solicitors in Dingwall if you have an accident at sea

Cruise ship operators take health and safety matters very seriously, they do not want crewmembers becoming ill or passengers having accidents.  They want everyone on board to be happy and healthy while they are at sea.  But not matter what precautions they take, sometimes things go wrong and accidents and illnesses occur, through no fault of the victims.  In this situation, the injured person may well want to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors in Dingwall.

The things that can happen on a cruise ship holiday

There are a number of ways that accidents can happen when you are on a cruise, just some of them being:

  • Slipping on wet unmarked floors
  • Falling down stairs because of a lack of or broken handrails
  • Food poisoning
  • Legionnaires disease
  • Tripping over an obstruction in a walkway
  • Injuries caused by faulty products in cabins and communal areas
  • Objects falling and hitting people

You may need medical attention for these injuries, lets just hope the doctor doesn’t make a mistake as well.

The employees

Crewmembers are employees so if they are involved in an accident that was not their fault, their personal injury claim would be made under employment laws which say all employers should protect the health and safety of employees while they are at work.
