The village of Kirknewton is located in West Lothian, in Scotland, and is connected to Edinburgh via the A71 and the B7031 roads. It takes roughly 30 minutes to drive into Edinburgh city centre, making Kirknewton a convenient and pleasantly “semi-rural” place to live for commuters. The village sits on the edge of the Pentland Hills and is located within a 3 mile distance of Livingston and 10 miles of Edinburgh.
Kirknewton railway station can be found at the western edge of the village. The B7031 road crosses the railway line and the level crossing has in the recent past seen several serious accidents, when motor cars collided with trains. If you were a surviving passenger of such a car accident and it was later discovered that faulty signalling was to blame for your crash, you could make an injury claim in Kirknewton and expect compensation.
Hurt in a public place
The area has historic buildings that are used as wedding venues, and just as with any place the public may venture, health and safety for the visitors and workers is paramount.
If you and your wedding party strolled out into the gardens of a venue and one of your guests twisted their ankle because their foot got stuck in a mole’s freshly dug hole, it is unlikely you could make a successful injury claim – moles do as they please and no matter how responsible or vigilant a gardener might be, turn your back and the little fiends will have wrecked your immaculate lawn again!
However, if the same guest fell in a venues restaurant because a loose floor tile had tripped them up, and negligence was proven, your guest could possibly make an injury claim in Kirknewton.
