Port Glasgow is just that, the port that serves Glasgow; the town that grew up around the shipyards and docks. However it was originally a small village called Newark. Newark Castle was built on the banks of the River Clyde by George Maxwell towards the end of the 15th century and was eventually surrounded by shipyards. In 1667, the town council of Glasgow bought land from the Maxwell family and constructed the harbour and breakwater, it was at this time that Port Glasgow was born.
Have you had a whiplash injury in Port Glasgow?
You may have met with an unfortunate accident and right now be suffering with a whiplash injury in Port Glasgow. It could have happened because you slipped and fell off a ladder, for example, and it would depend on the circumstances as to whether or not you could make a personal injury compensation claim. If you suffered your whiplash injury in Port Glasgow while you were pruning high bushes in your garden and the ladder you were using was old and unsafe, then you would not be eligible to make a claim. If, however, your employer had given you the ladder and asked you to fix something, and the rungs of the ladder broke, you might be able to make a claim for that whiplash injury in Port Glasgow.
