Edinburgh is not just a major Scottish city, it is the country’s capital. Its population has reached 464,000 in the urban area, rising to 492,000 in the local authority area. It is very popular with tourists as well as offering locals many superb sights and facilities to use. You’ll rarely hear of anyone suffering an accident in Edinburgh, purely because such things are exceptionally rare.
While that’s true, we all know accidents have a habit of happening when we least expect them. The increased population in cities means there is a chance someone could be injured crossing the road or driving along, when they may not encounter anyone at all if they were in a sleepy village. However, this is not necessarily the case as accidents can potentially happen anywhere.
Could you claim anything for an accident in Edinburgh?
You never know whether a compensation claim could be successful, purely because each situation is different. For example, some accidents are very clearly the fault of one person and not another, so the person who was hurt but was not at fault could have a chance to claim if they decide to do so.
However, how would you know whether you could claim or not if you were knocked out and have little to no memory of what happened? As you can see, it is not always easy to determine whether your situation warrants compensation to be paid to you. This is where professional advice comes in very handy indeed.
