Brae is a settlement on the mainland of the Shetland Islands in Scotland. Traditionally a fishing village, with the construction of the nearby Sullom Voe Oil Terminal in the 1970s Brae grew rapidly, merging with the nearby village of Northbrae. The village also stages its own Up Helly Aa, a fire festival held throughout the Shetland Islands annually in the middle of winter to mark the end of the yule season.
As wonderful as it can be to take part in such a community event, unfortunately such festivities often experience a fair share of accidents and injuries too. There is nothing worse than an injury spoiling your fun at such an event and this is made even worse when that accident occurred through no fault of your own.
At Accident Advice Helpline we know that sometimes an accident just isn’t your fault, and it is unfair that you should have to suffer because of it. If safety measures and general upkeep is not maintained in Brae, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible for compensation with help from a work injury solicitor in Brae.
