Car accident claims
Bo’ness used to be home to some heavy industries such as shipbreaking, but these days it is known as a commuter town. This means that many of the people who live there commute to Edinburgh, Glasgow or Falkirk for work. Edinburgh is just 17 miles away, a round trip of about 34 miles every day. The law of averages means that the longer you spend on the road, the more likely it is that you will be involved in an accident that was not your fault.

Slips, trips and falls
Bo’ness has lovely views over the Firth of Forth and is a pleasant place to walk around. Most take place without incident, but some unlucky people have a slip, trip or fall. This can be more serious than it first appears and some people have sustained quite severe injuries such as broken limbs and dislocations. The injuries cause major disruption to their everyday life and they can end up losing money through being unable to work. Our injury claims solicitors in Bo’ness can advise you on how to make a claim for compensation. It is not complicated; you just have to provide details of your fall and your injury.
There are some important details about your fall to make a note of, including:
- The exact location of your fall – a photograph is useful.
- Statements from anyone who saw you fall, plus names and contact details.
- What did you fall over – could you have reasonably expected it to be there?
- If you fell over a temporary but hazardous object, such as an ill-placed cone or out of place paving slab, was it guarded or were there warning signs?
All of this information will help our injury claims solicitors in Bo’ness to sort out your claim. If you want to discuss your accident in more detail then make sure you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. Our expert advisers can be reached on 0800 689 0500 now.
