Have you ever heard of the Farne Islands? You may have done if you are familiar with Northumberland, which is a county in the north of England. The Farne Islands can be found just off the coast here, some just a mile-and-a-half from the mainland, with others over three times that distance away. It may not surprise you to learn you’d have a real task ahead of you to locate a personal injury lawyer in the Farne Islands, since none of them are even populated. Some of the islands disappear altogether at high tide!
With that said, it is not outside the realms of possibility that you might be injured if you were visiting the islands. Few people do this, and fewer still have any reason to be hurt. But if you did have good cause to visit the islands and you were hurt, you may want to consider whether that injury was because of a third party’s negligence.
Staying safe while walking
Many people enjoy walking holidays, and many choose to escape from the hustle of daily life by visiting out-of-the-way places that are scarcely visited by others. Anyone who embarks on a walking holiday should take appropriate care when they are out and about, and prepare for all eventualities.
It is particularly important to wear appropriate footwear, since this can prevent you from falling or twisting an ankle. If you wear walking boots, for example, you are far less likely to experience an injury. If you do hurt yourself, you may be to blame yourself, or it could just be an unfortunate accident. But there are times when someone else is to blame, perhaps because the surrounding area should have been maintained and it was not. Similarly, any walking tour should be risk-assessed for health and safety reasons. If this did not happen and someone on that tour was injured, there is a chance of making a compensation claim.
Do you need a personal injury lawyer in the Farne Islands?
If you do, you now know it is not just difficult to find a personal injury lawyer in the Farne Islands, it is impossible. Since no one lives there except for a few rangers – and even then, not for the entire year – it is impossible to find someone who is experienced in this part of law. So, it means finding someone on the mainland once you have been treated for any injuries you have.
