The coastal area is rich in marine life. There are rare species and habitats of birds, mammals, fish, whales and dolphins. You may be watching them on shore or from a boat when you slip, trip or fall out of no fault of your own. You may start looking for a lawyer in Caithness.

Injuries dealt with by a lawyer in Caithness
A fall can cause many types of injuries on the head, back, knees, ankles etc. If you experience any of the following injuries or you have experienced them within the last 3 years, it is your time to call a legal firm.
- Whiplash-a fall may cause you to fall backwards and injure your neck. This kind of injury requires the medication and help of a physiotherapist that has to be paid. If you are in a similar situation don’t wait, contact a lawyer in Caithness through the Accident Advice Helpline.
- Knee injury-you may fall forward and land on your knees. You may get a graze, bruise or a cut. In some accidents dislocation of the kneecap or another part of the joint stretches out the ligaments and tendons surrounding the affected area. You may be unable to work for a period of time requiring compensation for loss of earnings.
- Sprains and strains-a twisted ankle, elbow, a sprained wrist or other joint. These problems may not be acute but they still affect your daily life and may be quite painful needing medical attention.
- Spinal injury–stress on the spine or trauma can cause a slipped disc which can be very painful leading to deformity.
