Outdoors enthusiasts making no-win, no-fee Port Appin claims
When you take part in outdoors activities, you expect that the organisers will usually keep you safe. This applies to everything from abseiling to zip lining, clay pigeon shooting and even hiking. Equipment is generally able to be hired, and it’s important that any equipment is well maintained and safe to use. If you have been injured due to faulty equipment, such as damaged ropes whilst rock climbing, for example, then the organiser/operator of the activity could be held liable for your injuries. It may be that an unqualified or untrained person was operating activities and this has led to your accident – for example if you are not shown properly how to handle the gun and correct safety procedures whilst clay pigeon shooting.
If this has happened to you then we can help you to make a no-win, no-fee Port Appin claim after your accident. You normally won’t have to go to court, as most claims can be handled in full over the phone – yet another reason to claim compensation with us. Our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so even if you have blown the budget on a holiday to Port Appin, you can still afford to make a claim with us.
