Broadford is the second-largest settlement on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, with links to the liqueur Drambuie. Legend tells that Bonnie Prince Charlie passed the recipe to Clan MacKinnon, who then handed it down to James Ross, landlord of the Broadford Inn here. The recipe was developed and improved before being labelled as Drambuie in the late 19th century. Whilst you probably won’t be able to make a personal injury claim if you’ve been injured due to consuming too much liqueur, if your accident was somebody else’s fault, making a no win, no fee in Broadford claim could be on the cards.
How have you been injured?
Accidents and injuries in pubs and hotels are not unheard of, and Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people across the UK claim compensation since 2000. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could lead to a no win, no fee in Broadford claim:
- Slipping on a wet floor in a pub or hotel restaurant
- Food poisoning after eating pub or restaurant food
- Lacerations from broken glass in a bar
- Tripping on damaged flooring in a pub, restaurant or hotel
- Injured by damaged seats, tables or other furniture
- Head injuries caused by objects falling from height – such as a wall-mounted TV or speaker falling on you
- Slipping outside the pub – for example in the pub’s car park if it is icy
If somebody else is to blame for your accident, you could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings. For example if you have broken your ankle after slipping on a wet floor in a pub, you may need to take a few weeks or months off work to recover.
Should you make a claim?
There’s no reason not to make a no win, no fee in Broadford claim if you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame. The establishment you were injured in should have liability insurance in place in the event somebody makes a claim, so there’s no need to feel guilty. It’s up to them to ensure that their premises are safe for members of the public – and no matter how minor your injuries, you could claim if you have been hurt.
