Auldgirth in Dumfries and Galloway may not have a firm of solicitors, but it is set in wonderful countryside, and if you like clay pigeon shooting then there’s a shooting ground at which you can practise. If you are a keen angler, you may also visit Auldgirth for the salmon and sea trout fishing in the River Nirth. Although angling and clay pigeon shooting are relatively safe sports, accidents can happen, not all of which may be your fault.
Sometimes, an angler is injured because another inexperienced angler casts their line incorrectly. If you have had an accident while fishing that you can prove was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. To do this you would need the services of solicitors in Auldgirth, if you are based in the region.

Solicitors in Auldgirth, if there were any, would be able to tell you if you have grounds to make a claim against another person.
Grounds for making a claim
Basically, there are two main reasons for filing a personal injury compensation claim:
- You have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault; or
- You have been diagnosed with an illness that you and your solicitors in Auldgirth can prove was caused by someone else’s negligence.
When should I file my claim?
If you have suffered an illness or disease which you can prove was the result of another person being negligent about your health and safety, then you have three years in which to file your claim. However, the sooner you begin your claim, the sooner you can expect to receive compensation. The same is true if you have been injured in an accident for which you can prove another person was to blame.
However, if your accident occurred within the British Isles, you usually have three years to file a claim. That being said, there are some accidents and their subsequent injuries for which you have much less time in which to make your claim. Not all accidents carry the same limitation period. Call us here at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you might have to file your claim.
