The village of Castlerock is on the coast of County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. There are quite a few hotels in Castlerock, if you are thinking of visiting the area, and there is a 9- and 18-hole golf course there, along with a brewery. If you had been imbibing in the brewery just before you had an accident in the street, you probably wouldn’t be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for any injuries you sustained, as for any claim to be successful, you and your solicitors in Castlerock, for example, would have to prove that the accident was no fault of yours. This would be difficult if you had been under the influence at the time.
Solicitors in Castlerock and golfing injury claims
Solicitors in Castlerock, or ones based anywhere else in the United Kingdom, could help you file a personal injury compensation claim if you were injured in an accident which you can prove, with their help, you were not responsible for. For example, if you were playing a round of golf and a fellow-golfer spliced a shot and a stray ball hit you on the head causing you to sustain an injury, perhaps serious (golf balls are heavy, especially when hit with force), you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim. As more and more golfers are taking out insurance to cover such claims, getting compensation can be quite easy.
If you slipped, tripped or fell on a golf course, you may be able to claim compensation from the course owners if they have not paid sufficient attention to the health and safety guidelines which cover golf courses. Solicitors in Castlerock, for example, would be able to advise you whether or not you have good grounds to make a claim.
You may also have an accident in the club house (the 19th hole). For example if you slip and fall and break a limb, because liquid or food had been spilled and not cleaned up, you may be able to make a claim for your injuries with the help of solicitors in Castlerock or ones elsewhere in the UK.
Personal injury compensation claims
Apart from making a claim for injuries sustained in an accident that was not your fault, you may also be able to make a claim for an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. You would have three years to do so from the date of being diagnosed with it.
