Bo’ness, or to give it its full name Borrowstounness, is a coastal town in Scotland on the banks of the Firth of Forth, close to Edinburgh and Falkirk. In the 19th century, Bo’ness was a major port and centre of heavy industry, but today it is primarily a commuter town. Get in touch today if you’ve been in an unexpected accident in Bo’ness.
Remnants of its industrial past are still to be seen, as there is the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway, with its steam engines still running. James Watt (1735–1819) worked on his experimental engine in a cottage in the grounds of Kinneil House, which was built in the 15th century.
Why look for solicitors in Bo’ness?
If you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, you may wish to make a personal injury compensation claim. Solicitors in Bo’ness would be able to advise you as to whether or not you have a claim to make. They could also help you to build a case to prove that the accident was no fault of your own.
You may also be searching for a firm of solicitors in Bo’ness if you have been recently diagnosed with an illness that could be proven to have been contracted because of another person’s negligence towards your health and safety.
If you are a regular commuter (perhaps from Bo’ness to Falkirk, Glasgow or Aberdeen), you may travel by bus or use your own vehicle. However, if you travel by train then you may be injured after slipping and falling at the station, perhaps because ice and snow have not been cleared away from the platform, or you may slip on food or liquid that has spilled onto the floor.
If you are injured in this way on station premises, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries if you and your solicitors in Bo’ness can prove that your accident was the result of the railway staff’s negligence.
You may be unfortunate enough to be involved in a train crash, in which case it would probably be easy to prove that the accident was not caused by you. If you have to receive medical treatment for an injury sustained in such a crash, then you would probably be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim.
