Have you slipped or tripped in Glenrothes?
In wintry weather, it’s very important to be careful when you’re out and about walking or going to get your supplies. This especially applies to older people.
It’s important to dress warmly, and to wear sensible, low heeled shoes which give a good grip on pavements. Use a cane or stick for support if it helps.
This is the time of year when unfortunately lots of older people do slip or trip and it can result in a broken leg, arm or hip. This can result in a lot of time in hospital or in finding it really hard to get around at home.
Since older people do take longer to heal, whether it’s a cut or graze or something more serious, like a broken bone, this can make a slip or trip for an elderly person even worse.
It’s why councils have to be very careful to keep the streets clean, and sweep up fallen leaves. They need to repair pavements very quickly and check regularly for broken paving stones or cracks in the tarmac.
If you have any questions you should call a solicitor for advice.
