The injury solicitors in Gullane that townsfolk use are sometimes asked to launch a personal injury claim for an injury known as golfer’s elbow. The town of Gullane lies on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth in East Lothian, Scotland. Situated next to the sea, its lovely sandy beach (Gullane Bent) is backed with sandy dunes that have been colonised with greenery, creating a lovely, natural and peaceful space for sunbathing and swimming. Gullane is quietly residential with many residents taking the 20 mile daily commute into nearby Edinburgh, and is best known within the sporting community for its links with golfing.
Gullane’s links with Golf
There are 3 excellent golf courses in Gullane, one of which, (Muirlfield), has hosted the Open Championship on a number of occasions, so you may be forgiven for thinking that golfer’s elbow is caused through playing golf. But in actual fact, when Accident Advice Helpline get involved with processing personal injury claims for this condition, it’s usually caused by something other than golfing – more often than not, a repetitive strain injury (RSI) in the workplace, just like another sporting related injury – tennis elbow.
Self-inflicted injuries do not warrant compensation
The thing is that when you inflict an injury upon yourself, which is usually the case with a sporting injury; you’ve got no one but yourself to blame, and you’d have to admit that suing yourself for damages would be pretty pointless! – But when these injuries are brought about through carrying out your duties at work – then that’s quite a different story. In this instance it would be your employer who would be to blame, and as such, you can then sue for damages, or compensation.
