The beautiful coast of North East Scotland offers a huge range of activities for those of us who enjoy some extreme exercise and adventure when we are on holiday. The area around Thurso and the whole North East coast is an ideal location for land and water based adventure activities.
Safety procedures have to be extremely stringent for these types of activity and the staff that run the activities must be very highly trained. Your safety must be the highest priority. When an accident happens you may be think that this is just acceptable in some activities and that you cannot make a claim for compensation – you may think that because you chose to take part in a potentially dangerous activity there is no point in looking for a lawyer who works for no win no fee on Thurso cases.
In fact this is not true at all because the company operating the activity has a duty to protect your health and safety whilst you are taking part and if it can be shown that the accident was their fault then a lawyer working for no win no fee on Thurso cases may be able to help you claim compensation. The help that you need is available from the Accident Advice Helpline.
