About making an injury claim in Kirkwall


Kirkwall is the capital of the Orkney Islands, which are located off the northern shores of Scotland. Kirkwall boasts a ferry port to connect the principle Island of Orkney with Aberdeen and Lerwick on the Scottish mainland and provides a connection to the various islands that lie north off Orkney itself.

Since Orkney has a number of historically important buildings and prehistoric ancient monuments as well as a rugged beauty, the islands are popular with tourists during the summer. With a population of around 7,600 people Kirkwall is a sizeable settlement and there are plenty of shops, two museums, welcoming cafes, public houses and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.

If you visited the 12th century Bishop’s Palace or the Earl’s Palace on a rainy October day and, carried away by admiring its gorgeous Renaissance architecture, you slipped on some wet leaves outside the palace, you’d only have yourself to blame.

However if your child had an accident on faulty play equipment somewhere when you were on a day out, you could have cause to consider an injury claim, if your child’s accident was down to poor repair and upkeep and negligence could be proven.
