Broadford is on the Isle of Skye, where veterans of the Napoleonic Wars settled in the first half of the 19th century. It s also associated with Bonnie Prince Charlie who went “over the seas to Skye,” in the words of the song.
In regards to compensation claims, and finding a suitable solicitor in the area, you can only make a claim for injuries which arose from an accident which you can prove (with the help of your solicitors Broadford or elsewhere) was not your fault.
Why would I need solicitors Broadford?
If you visited Broadford while on holiday on Skye, you might have had an accident while driving there, for example you may have been unfortunate enough to have had a collision with a wild deer. They cause thousands of accidents every year on Britain’s roads. Solicitors Broadford, would no doubt inform you that you cannot make a compensation claim for your injuries, because a deer is a wild animal with no owner. If the deer were a farmed one, then you would be able to claim for your injuries against the owner, who has a responsibility to keep animal enclosures in a good state of repair so that they cannot escape and cause accidents.
You may have had an accident while on a boat trip, trying to spot an Orca or some otters. If the boat was not well-maintained, for example, the anti-slip coating might have worn away and there might not have been a firmly secured handrail to grab if you slipped, then you may be able, with the help of a firm of solicitors Broadford or elsewhere, to file a personal injury compensation claim against the owner of the boat.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Generally, for accidents that occur within the UK, you have three years in which to make a claim from the date of the accident. However, you should check exactly how long you have to file your claim, with a firm of injury solicitors in your hometown, as some accidents and injuries arising from them must be claimed for in a much shorter period of time.
