Powfoot is a coastal village in Dumfriesshire, Scotland and an ideal base for the Solway Coast Heritage Trail, which it is situated on. It has an eighteen-hole golf course, and a spa, and if you are an angler, you may catch a trout of salmon in the nearby River Annan. If you are a resident of Powfoot, you will know that there are no injury solicitors Powfoot-based, so what will you do if you want to file a personal injury compensation claim? The answer to that question is a simple one; call us at Accident Advice Helpline at any time, on one of our freephone numbers which you will find below.
Why would I need injury solicitors Powfoot?
You might be seeking a firm of injury solicitors Powfoot or one based anywhere else in the UK if you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. Injury solicitors Powfoot, for example, could help you build a case for claiming personal injury compensation. If the accident occurred within the British Isles, you generally have three years in which to file a claim for your injuries. However, you may only have two years in which to make your particular claim, so, if you are unsure about how long you have, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
A further reason for seeking a firm of injury solicitors is that you have been diagnosed with an illness or disease which you can prove resulted from another person’s negligence. An example of such an illness is a work-related one, and you may be able to prove that it was the result of your employer’s negligence. You have three years from the first diagnosis of the illness in which to make a personal injury compensation claim.
You may think that golf is a safe game, but in the recent past a round of golf cost £400,000. This was paid for compensation to a golfer after he lost his eye after being hit by a golf ball that had gone astray. Of course there are a good many golf courses in Scotland, and if you are a golfer, you may already have taken out personal liability insurance to cover the cost of any personal injury compensation claim made against you.
Apart from being struck by a golf ball, you may have a slip, trip or fall in the clubhouse (perhaps because of a spillage of food or liquid that had not been cleared up) or on a badly maintained green, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the golf course.
