North Kessock is a village on the Black Isle (actually a peninsula) in Scotland. There was probably a settlement in North Kessock in the 15th century, as there was certainly a ferry to North Kessock that was operated by the Dominican friars who had a monastery in Inverness. The ferries ran until the opening of the bridge in 1982. The village gets its name from a Pictish saint, Saint Kessoc or Kessog, who was the patron saint of Scotland until the adoption of Saint Andrew (the Vatican wasn’t terribly keen on saints who were Celtic or Pictish as they smacked a little of paganism to the early popes and cardinals).
There are bottlenose dolphins which you may see in the Moray Firth, and these are the most northerly colony of such creatures. If you go on a boat trip to view the dolphins, take care that you do not suffer a whiplash injury in North Kessock.
Making a claim for a whiplash injury in North Kessock
If you were on a yacht looking out for dolphins in the Moray Firth, you might have been really excited when you had your first glimpse of one and you might have suffered a whiplash injury in North Kessock if you inadvertently managed to have a blow to the head from the boom. If the whiplash injury in North Kessock was entirely your fault, of course, you would not be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. To make a claim for any type of injury sustained in an accident, you have to be able to prove that the accident was in no way your fault, but the fault of another person.
How long do I have to file my claim?
If you were injured in an accident within the UK that was not your fault and you can prove this, you would usually have three years from its date to make your claim. However, as always there are exceptions to the rule, and you may not have that long to file your particular claim. You should call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you actually have to file your personal injury compensation claim.
