The pleasant Scottish town of Tweedsmuir is perhaps one of the last places you’d expect to sustain an injury. However, personal injuries are a common occurrence and are usually due to negligence on behalf of the local council when not the fault of the injured party.
What should you do if you experience an accident in Tweedsmuir?
Slips, trips and falls can easily happen anywhere, but sometimes they result in serious injuries requiring medical attention, and sometimes leading to a loss of earnings. When such accidents happen and they are not your fault, it can seem unfair that you have to pay the price for someone else’s negligence.
Accident Advice Helpline makes it their mission to ensure that this is not the case. If you have experienced a slip, trip or fall that led you to require medical attention in Tweedsmuir in the last three years, then you could be entitled to compensation if the accident was not your fault. Such injuries covered are included but not limited to:
- A trip on broken pavement
- A fall down a stairway
- A slip on an icy pathway
The local council have a duty to ensure that Tweedsmuir is safe for you and your family. This means ensuring that pavements and stairwells are well maintained as well as putting down salt and grit and clearing roads and footpaths during adverse weather. If you suffer as a direct result of such negligence, then you should contact the Accident Advice Helpline who can put you in touch with a solicitor in Tweedsmuir.
Photograph the scene of your accident if possible and as well as that you should do what you can do obtain witness statements from those who saw the accident happen.
