If you have ever had good cause to search for a lawyer on the Isle of Islay, you will know it is not an easy task. The Isle of Islay is part of the Inner Hebrides, which in turn is part of Scotland, out to the west of the mainland. The island has a population of just over 3,200 people, with Port Ellen as the largest settlement.
Some people visit the island on holiday, while others live and work there. Very few accidents ever occur here, but of course, we all know things can go wrong no matter where we are. You may have had an accident on the island while visiting, and now you are back on the mainland you are wondering what you should do and whether you could claim anything. We have the answers you are looking for.
How can you work out if negligence was the cause of your accident?
This is easier in some instances than in others. Accidents happen for all kinds of reasons, and sometimes we might be the ones to blame. For example, if there are clear signs telling us not to run in a location, you can bet they are there for good reason. If we decide to run anyway, it would be our fault if we were injured in the process.
However, if we have an accident we were not responsible for, there is a chance it could lead to a compensation award being granted. For instance, an accident at work may be caused by poor health and safety measures. A car crash might be the fault of the other driver if they were speeding, or they didn’t look properly before turning into our path. Even if we are alone when injured, it could still be negligence that caused it to occur. Perhaps that pavement had not been repaired when it should have been, for example.
