The village of West Linton in southern Scotland is a peaceful and traditional village. It celebrates its annual week-long summer village festival – The Whipman – in June, and is one of the Borders’ oldest festivals.
Such festivals draw in plenty of tourists to celebrate the fun with the locals, but unfortunately festivals can often be the scene of nasty accidents as a result of slips, trips and falls. Of course, these can easily occur due to human error and lack of caution, but sometimes a nasty slip or fall is not your fault, and can leave you with an incapacitating injury to deal with.
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 West Linton, you may find that the local council is responsible for your injury and you could be eligible to make an injury claim in West Linton.
If your accident was in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you should check today and see if you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Take our quick and simple 30 second test to easily assess whether or not you are eligible to make an injury claim in West Linton. Such injury claims can include injuries sustained as a result of:
