Sanquhar is a town on the River Nith, in the Dumfries and Galloway area of Scotland in the United Kingdom. The town is thought to get its name from the Scottish Gaelic An t-Seann Chathair, meaning “the old seat”, and is situated to the north of the town of Thornhill.
Sanquhar is not a well known settlement, but its biggest claim to fame is probably that it plays host to the oldest working post office in the world, with the post office having been established in 1712. There is a 15th century castle which overlooks the town and this reflects the fact that the settlement was once more important than it is now, having been the site of a notable selection of battles during the Scottish war of independence.
In the modern day however, Sanquhar has less of a national impact but does still support a fairly healthy population of more than 2,000 residents. What this means is that the town does face similar issues to other larger urban areas, such as traffic, pollution and high accident and injury rates. These high rates of accident and injury in the area in turn mean that for a personal injury lawyer in Sanquhar it is a comparatively common source of compensation claims. It is this fact therefore, that leads the rest of this article to consider personal injury compensation claims with a personal injury lawyer in Sanquhar, and elsewhere, more closely.
