Lochcarron is a village famous for its tartan production, which is situated in the Wester Ross area of the Highlands in Scotland. The village sprawls along the coast of Loch Carron, from which it gets its name. Loch Carron is a salt water loch and it has a tradition of fishing with a slipway at the heart of the village of Lochcarron. The former name of the village was Janetown, but it changed it to Lochcarron at some time after 1813 when a road was built to it. The village soon tripled in size as accommodation was provided for some who had been displaced by the clearances, which made room for sheep at the expense of the inhabitants.
Lochcarron plays host to an annual Highland Games event in July, where you can see conventional track and field events as well as pipe bands and traditional heavy events such as tossing the cabre, throwing the hammer and so on.
Whiplash injury in Lochcarron
If you compete in one of the heavy events in the Lochcarron Highland Games, you might end up with a whiplash injury in Lochcarron. This could happen when you move in an awkward fashion and violently jolt your neck. If the whiplash injury in Lochcarron is your fault, you won’t be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injury. However if you suffer a whiplash injury in Lochcarron because another competitor inadvertently hit you on the head with a hammer and you suffered a whiplash injury in Lochcarron, along with other injuries, then you would probably be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against either the person responsible for throwing the object, or against the organisers of the event.
You may be entitled to claim against the organizers of an event if you were injured in an accident that you and your personal injury lawyer can prove was not your fault if they did not carry out a thorough risk assessment to minimize the risk of accidents. If your personal injury lawyer can indeed prove that the organisers had been negligent in their duty to protect the general public as well as competitors, you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim.
