Crail is a coastal market town in Fife, which was granted a charter to hold a market by Robert the Bruce in the early 14th century. There are fishing boats in the picturesque harbour, with cottages around it which were built for the fishermen and their families who have been plying their trade for centuries. There are cobbled streets leading down to the harbour, so wear sensible shoes if you go exploring. It is on the Kilminning Coast where there is a wildlife reserve, where you can see a plethora of birds, and if you look out to sea, you may see an eider duck or two on the water. Crail also has a museum and a golf club, and there is a Golf Hotel on the High Street which dates back to the 18th century.
Solicitors Crail and personal injury claims
If you have an accident while in Crail (after all, accidents can happen anywhere) you may be thinking of filing a personal injury compensation claim, but you can only do this if you can prove (with the help of solicitors in Crail, for example) that you were in no way to blame for the accident. Depending on the nature of the accident you have to make the claim within the limitation period for such accidents. Generally you have three years from the date of an accident to make a claim, although there are some accidents with shorter limitation periods. Solicitors in Crail, for example can tell you how long you have to make a claim, as can we at Accident Advice Helpline.
Solicitors in Crail (and others elsewhere) can help you file a claim if you can prove that an illness which you have been diagnosed with was caused by another person’s negligence. You have three years to claim for such an illness from the date of your first being diagnosed.
Accidents in the street
If you have an accident and are injured in the street, you might have tripped and fallen on a badly maintained pavement. If this happens to you, call the police and an ambulance and if you are able, take photographs of the part of the pavement that caused you to fall. The police will write a report and inform the local authority of your accident. You need to have immediate medical treatment for your injuries, as some tend to become worse if you don’t have medical attention.
