    Solicitors in Banchory


    It seems that local residents of Banchory have been complaining, “Nithin iver happens in Bunk’ry” and this has become the name given to the 2014 Banchory River Festival. The festival only began in 2013, so it is a fairly new event for the town. The festival will be held for the second time in June 2014 and organisers hope to attract tourists to the event as well as locals.

    Banchory is in Royal Deeside, an area of Scotland beloved of Queen Victoria, and being close to the River Dee and the River Feugh, it is known as the Gateway to Deeside. The surrounding countryside is spectacular so it makes a good base for exploring Deeside.  The annual Banchory Show will be held as usual in July and in the surrounding area there are different venues for Highland Games, so it would appear that there is quite a lot to do there. As the locals complain “nithin iver happens in Bunk’ry” it may appear a sleepy place, but even in Banchory, accidents can happen. If you are a resident of the town, you may be looking for a firm of solicitors in Banchory because you were injured in an accident that you can prove, with their assistance, was not your fault.

    Solicitors in Banchory can help you make your claim

    There will probably be a firm of solicitors in Banchory, but it may not have a specialist on its staff who could help you with your specific personal injury compensation claim. This is because there are so many different types of accidents and injuries that solicitors tend to specialise in just one type.  For example, if you were injured in an accident at work, you would need the services of an expert solicitor who specialised in health and safety at work cases and who knew employment law thoroughly. There would be little point in hiring a solicitor whose speciality was accidents in public places (for example) to represent you.

    Illnesses caused by negligence

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness that you and your solicitors in Banchory, for example, could prove was caused because of another person’s negligence, you may also be able to make a claim, if you were first diagnosed with the illness less than three years ago. Such illnesses could be work-related ones, or food poisoning after eating out, or after eating a contaminated product bought at a local store. You may even have had food poisoning while on holiday abroad, and if you booked a package holiday through a UK tour operator, you may be able to claim compensation for your illness when you return to the UK.
