    Been in an unexpected accident in Kyle of Lochalsh?

    You may be seeking injury solicitors in Kyle of Lochalsh because you have been injured in an accident which you can prove was no fault of yours, or because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove is or was the result of another person’s negligence.

    You will usually have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim, although if you were injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at an airport you will only have two years in which to make your claim. Also, you only have two years in which to make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you sustained your injuries because you were an innocent victim in a crime.

    Fish farming illnesses

    Salmon farming is a relatively new occupation undertaken by crofters around Kyle of Lochalsh, and workers need to be adequately protected from the health risks which they might be subjected to.

    Workers may have to work in cold waters and would need protection from the freezing water temperatures, and they would also need to be equipped with personal buoyancy aids so that they could survive if they fell into the water accidentally, whether from boats or cages. The food fed to fish may generate dust, which if inhaled could cause respiratory problems. It could also attract rats and create a risk of leptospirosis.

    Fish farmers may also be at risk of musculoskeletal disorders, as they may need to manually lift heavy nets.

    Fish may have to be immunised against certain diseases and farmers may be at risk from needlestick injuries if they use oil-based vaccines. Also organophosphorus pesticides may be employed to treat sea lice, so people who use these need to have regular health check-ups to ensure they are not made ill because of these hazardous substances.

    Despite these dangers, it may be that fish farming is less hazardous than traditional land-based agriculture.
