The beach at Portstewart, Northern Ireland, is a favourite haunt for surfers and those who adore golden sands. It is next door to a rather more boisterous neighbour, Portrush. Portstewart became popular in the Victorian era with the advent of the railway. It has, however, avoided the 21st century popularity of its neighbour, as you will find no static caravan parks there, or amusement parks; it has a more genteel atmosphere about it. It does not have a railway station, although there is one in nearby Portrush. It hosts a Red Sails Festival every year, as it is said that Jimmy Kennedy was inspired to write the song “Red Sails in the Sunset” by a sunset at Portstewart.

Finding injury solicitors in Portstewart
You might be looking for injury solicitors in Portstewart because you were injured in an accident and you can prove it was not your fault. You have three years in which to make such a claim if it happened on dry land in the UK. However, as there are some accidents and the injuries arising from them with a limitation period of two years, you should check with a firm of injury solicitors in Portstewart, for example, to find out how long you actually have to file your claim.
Another reason for trying to locate a firm of injury solicitors in Portstewart, or ones based elsewhere, is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence. You have three years to make a claim for this kind of illness from the date of the first diagnosis.
Illnesses caused by the negligence of another person
Food poisoning, Legonnaire’s Disease, work-related illnesses and illnesses arising from poor living conditions if you are a tenant, are all examples of illnesses which may have been caused by another person’s negligence. You and your injury solicitor will have to prove that negligence on the part of another person was responsible for the illness.
