Dounby is a village in Orkney in Scotland. The West Mainland Agricultural Show (commonly called the Dounby Show) occurs here every August on the Thursday before the Orkney County Show The County show is always the 2nd Saturday in August.
In Scotland, as in many other places in the UK, there are lots of good walks in the hills and surrounding areas. Quite a quiet pastime but sometimes accidents happen while the hikers are out, and if they are injured through someone elses fault they may be able to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors Dounby.
Injury solicitors in Dounby and the accidents that can happen when you are out for a stroll
Walking, hiking and rambling are becoming increasingly popular, with many new clubs opening nationwide. It is a great way of keeping fit as well as socialising and seeing the countryside. However, things do occasionally go wrong, what if:
- You are walking through a farmer’s field and are attacked by a cow – a regular occurrence that the farmer should prevent if he has public footpaths running over his land.
- That lovely pub lunch at the end of the walk gives you food poisoning
- You trip over something left outside a shop on one of the narrow country high streets and fall into the path of an oncoming car
Just three examples of what could happen, and does happen, while people are out walking, hiking or rambling. If this sort of situation, or any other accident happens to you, injury solicitors in Dounby would be glad to help make your personal injury claim.
The resulting injuries
As with all accidents, the severity of the injuries sustained can vary greatly from a few abrasions to life changing brain damage, and even death. How bad your injury is, how long it will take to recover and the impact it had had on your life will all need to be accounted for when making a personal injury compensation claim.Open Claim Calculator
