In times past, Ladybank was known as Ladybog, as the monks who lived at Lindores Abbey were granted the right to cut peat moss in a boggy area which they called Our Lady’s Bog. When the Edinburgh and Northern Railway was built in the mid-19th century, there was some debate about its name being Ladybog; somehow that didn’t seem terribly attractive, and so the station was called Ladybank and the village which grew around it was similarly called Ladybank.

Injury lawyers in Ladybank
You may also be searching for injury lawyers in Ladybank if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you and your injury lawyers in Ladybank could prove was the result of another person’s negligence. For example, if you live in rented accommodation and have repeatedly asked your landlord to do much needed repairs because of damp, and this has not happened, if you have been diagnosed with respiratory problems or any other health problem because of your housing conditions, then you could be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against your landlord.
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease, or with food poisoning and so on. Such health issues can often be proved to have resulted from another person’s negligence.
If you have an accident at a railway station or while travelling on a train, you may be able to prove that it was not your fault. For example, platform areas and other public areas should be safe. If ice and snow has not been adequately cleared away, and you slip and break a limb, then you may be able to prove negligence on the part of the staff at the station and so be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries and the pain, distress and suffering they caused you.
If you have an accident while travelling on a train and are injured, if let’s say two trains collided, then you would have grounds for making an injury claim. In November 2013 an elderly man was rushed to hospital with back injuries when a train crashed into a station barrier at Chester railway station. In July 2013 two trains collided at Norfolk station, but no one was seriously hurt, luckily.
