Personal injury lawyer Livingston
Your local authority is responsible for maintaining the safety of paths in and around the area you live in. As a council tax payer, you have the right to be able to walk along the street happy in the knowledge that you will be safe from suffering an accident that was not your fault. Unfortunately though, partly as a consequence of cuts to council budgets, there are times when local authorities can be a little bit tardy when it comes to repairing any damage to paths and highways.
This, to you as a taxpayer, should be unacceptable, especially if you wind up being injured in an accident that was not your fault while minding your own business walking down to your local shopping centre. If this were to happen to you, there will be a chance that you might be able to use the services of a top-class personal injury lawyer in Livingston to launch a personal injury case against your local council for their negligence.
