Whiplash injury in Loch Fyne


Loch Fyne is one of Scotland’s sea lochs on the west coast of the county of Argyll and Bute, famous for its oysters and Loch Fyne kippers (smoked herrings). In summer basking sharks may visit Loch Fyne and it is home to dolphins, otters and seals. There are a number of villages scattered around the loch for tourists to explore, and of course, there’s the local whiskey to sample. You can’t go far in Scotland without finding a distillery.

Legends of Loch Fyne

In July 1570 it is recorded that a creature which was the size of a ship’s mast was seen to surface from the waters of Loch Fyne; sometime later a huge carcass was found on the shores of the loch, but no one could say what the creature was. Close to Inveraray there is supposed to be a phantom ship which appears on Loch Fyne marking the imminent death of a senior member of the Campbell family. It was last sighted in 1913. There are reportedly three members of the ship’s crew on deck and although it is first seen on the loch, it moves over land.

Whiplash injury in Loch Fyne

What would you do if you saw the phantom ship of Loch Fyne? You might run, trip and fall and jolt your head so violently you had a bad case of whiplash injury in Loch Fyne. (You can get a whiplash injury in Loch Fyne, or anywhere else, without being in a car accident.) Unfortunately if you got your whiplash injury in Loch Fyne after being terrified by the phantom ship, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. This is because no one would believe your story, they would probably imagine that you had drunk a ‘wee dram’ too many.

In order to make a successful personal injury claim in Loch Fyne or anywhere else in the UK, for that matter, you must be able to prove, with the assistance of your personal injury lawyer, that the accident in which you sustained whiplash injury in Loch Fyne, or any other injury, was not your fault, but caused by another person.
