The car park at my son's school apparently is owned by the local council. It used to be gravel but they put bitumen on it about 8 months ago. There are knee-high wooden barriers around the car park with about a 10-15 cm gap between them and the bitumen, which is just gravel/dirt. A lot of these barriers are bent back from cars pushing into them. Anyway, I was putting something in my boot and my foot got caught between the barrier and bitumen which made me fall flat on my back (on the other side of the barrier). My foot was jammed stuck between the barrier and bitumen and it took a few people to get it out. As it turns out, I now have a fractured talus bone & severe sprain and I am unable to walk/weight bare. I have to use a moon boot for at least 8 weeks, and crutches. I also have a 'corked thigh', but it is my foot that is my biggest problem. I cannot drive or look after my son properly. I also look after my Mother who doesn't live with me so this also makes it hard. It has made my life and that of my family's life very inconvenient especially seeing I am the only one who can legally drive. My question is, would I be entitled to any compensation or anything through council? I have submitted an incident report.
