Midwife loses crash appeal

Have your say

A MIDWIFE who lost a bid for damages from a council after she was injured in a car crash has lost her appeal.

Jill Gibson sued West Lothian Council alleging they failed to provide adequate drainage where the accident happened. Ms Gibson was driving to Edinburgh on the A70 on Christmas Eve 2007 when her car skidded and rolled over.

A judge ruled that Ms Gibson had “failed to establish negligence on the part of the defenders”.
