New Lanark in Scotland is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site because of the village created by Robert Owen. He had strong humanist values and recognized workers’ needs for the physical and spiritual. He designed well-equipped buildings for the workers of the cotton mill based in the village and his designs were the base for the later Garden Cities.

Injury solicitors in New Lanark
If you did manage to find injury solicitors in New Lanark, they would be able, perhaps, if they had the appropriate experience, to help you file a personal injury compensation claim. You may be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. If your accident occurred in Britain, you would have three years in which to file a claim for your injuries. However if the accident occurred in international waters or air space, or at an airport in a country which was a signatory to the Montreal Convention, you would only have two years in which to file a claim.
You could also require the services of injury solicitors in New Lanark, or ones based elsewhere in the UK, if you were diagnosed with an illness which you could prove was the result of another person’s negligence. For example, you may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, which you and your injury solicitor could prove was caused by your employer’s negligence.
Accidents at work
If you have an accident at work, you should seek immediate medical attention and make sure the details of the accident are recorded in the accident book along with names and contact details of any witnesses there might have been to it.
Any accident in the workplace should be reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If you believe that your accident will go unreported to them, you can report it directly.
