It is comprised of the two towns which give their names to the parish, along with a little of the surrounding area.

Few individuals in the area will ever have any need to go looking for someone with this specialism anyway. However, it can be reassuring to know someone is on your side and ready to act on your behalf should you ever be injured through someone else’s fault.
Negligence in public places
Negligence is a word most of us are familiar with. It comes into play in a very important way with regard to accidents, because in some cases, innocent people can be hurt because of someone else’s actions. Inaction could also be proven to have been negligent in the case of some accidents.
For example, imagine you are walking through a local sports centre and you slip over on the floor, spraining your ankle and breaking a finger as you try to break your fall. You notice the floor where you slipped was wet, yet there were no signs up telling or warning you of this fact. This would be negligent, because someone else should have noticed the spillage and done something about it – someone working in the centre. Since this wasn’t the case, their inaction led to your injury.
How can you find out whether negligence was behind your injuries?
The best way to determine whether you have a chance to get any compensation would be to consult an injury solicitor in Kirkcaldy and Dysart, if that’s where the accident or injury occurred.
