We are all familiar with the appearance of Great Britain on a map. To the north-east of Scotland, there is a group of islands known as an archipelago, and these are the Shetland Isles. Sometimes known simply as Shetland, they are included as part of Scotland, and have a population of around 23,210 people. As you can imagine, the occasional road accident in the Shetland Isles happens just as it does on the mainland, but thankfully, such things don’t happen too often.
Most of us take appropriate care whenever we are driving, but it is very easy to become complacent. It is this complacency that can cause road accidents. If you are caught up in one, the priority will be to find out if anyone has been injured. After that, the question of culpability may well arise.
Did someone else cause your road accident?
Remembering what happened in a road accident is not always easy. Very often, accidents occur because someone makes the wrong decision, or because they fail to see someone else ahead of them who has the right of way. Numerous scenarios could crop up here, of course, and it is important to determine whether a third party caused your accident if you had one. This might be easier to do by getting statements from witnesses, as well as giving your own statement if you end up trying to make a compensation claim.
You shouldn’t worry about any of this, though, because a personal injury solicitor can always guide you through what happens and when. They will be able to tell you whether you could claim, and what your chances are of receiving compensation. Their experience and knowledge will steer you through what must be done and when. Many people are surprised at how much easier it is to progress through a claim than they originally thought.
Did you have a road accident in the Shetland Isles recently?
‘Recently’ could mean in the last few days or weeks, or any point within the last three years. This is the period within which you must launch a compensation claim if you are going to do so. After that period, you cannot go ahead with a claim, even if you have good evidence. This means the sooner you call Accident Advice Helpline to get some no-obligation advice, the sooner you will get the results you want. If we can help you claim compensation, we will do so on a no-win, no-fee basis.
