8 days ago while walking my dogs in Edinburgh Gardens I stepped in a hidden pothole in grassy flat ground near the basketball court and fractured my ankle. Can I take legal action against Yarra Council? And if so can I get legal aid as I am 62 on a Widow Allowance with a 19 year old still doing year 12I am a self employed writer and pet carer and the doctor tells me I will have to wear the cast for at least 6 weeks. My ability to move is affected as I'm on crutches and am finding it very hard to even look after myself let alone shop clean cook dress myself and so on and can't walk dogs either mine or the other people's I would otherwise care for. I also can't look for work as I would otherwise be doing and have had to postpone other self-employed work. Thanks.
