If Struan sounds vaguely Scottish, that would be because it is the name of a small village on the Isle of Skye. It is also the name of a village just west of Blair Atholl in Perthshire – also in Scotland. Since both are villages, they only have small populations. This means the task of finding some professionals there could be difficult to complete. For example, you may find a lawyer in Struan, but you may not be able to find one specialising in personal injury cases.
This type of lawyer will handle cases that involve injuries suffered by people who were hurt in accidents. These accidents might include road accidents, injuries caused to pedestrians, those caused to shoppers or people going about their business when they were hurt, and others who might have been injured at work. While few of us will experience an injury on any given day, fewer still will be unlucky enough to be hurt through no fault of our own.
Is bad luck the same as negligence?
No – and this is an important point to remember if you are thinking about claiming compensation. Sometimes, things might happen to cause you injury and those things were not your fault. However, this does not necessarily mean they were someone else’s fault, either. You must make sure you have proof of another individual’s negligence, or the negligence of a business or company, if this is the case.
For example, if you were injured while working at your normal job, it might potentially be because of negligence on the part of your employer. Did they provide you with ample training, or was this forgotten? Did they provide you with personal protective equipment (PPE) or did they not bother? Such things are very rare, thankfully, but some people have been unlucky and have sustained injuries at work that were entirely avoidable.
