Tripped on a pavement?
Sometimes, it’s just one of those things; something that happened because you were rushing or not paying attention, and nobody is at fault. However, if you fell due to a damaged, uneven or poorly maintained pavement, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
Here at Injury Lawyers Direct, we can assist in putting together a successful pavement accident claim. Simply give us a call on 0800 110 5888 and explain what happened. Our team of experts can advise on your eligibility and, if you have a valid case, seek financial justice on your behalf.
Why choose us to assist with your pavement accident claim?
Pavement accidents can often lead to serious and painful injuries.
Not only is your physical health likely to be affected, you may be unable to work, leading to unforeseen financial difficulties. It may have had a profound effect on your mental wellbeing and quality of life, unable to do things you once enjoyed. And when you consider the fact that the accident wasn’t your fault – and could have been avoided – you’re bound to be frustrated.
We understand what you’re going through and realise, at this moment, claiming for pavement trip compensation may be the least of your concerns. After all, you need to focus on your recovery. But it’s important to seek justice for your injuries (if only to relieve any financial pressures). And our goal is to make the process of claiming as smooth, straightforward and efficient as possible.
By applying our experience in this area, we can oversee the entire claim – striving to obtain the best possible outcome, with very little effort on your behalf. We have a team of specialist public liability solicitors at our disposal, as well as a network of consultant barristers, insurers and medics. And, as such, we can assist with pavement accident claims for a diverse range of injuries, including:
- sprains and strains (e.g. to the wrist, ankle, back)
- cuts and lacerations
- bone fractures and breaks
- nerve, ligament, or tendon damage
- chest injuries
- spinal injuries, such as slipped discs and hernias
- head and brain injuries
- internal bleeding or damage to organs
These injuries may have been caused by uneven kerbs, raised paving slabs, damaged or missing utility covers, protruding tree roots, potholes, or poor street lighting. But keep in mind, this isn’t a full list. To ensure your safety, every council has a duty to maintain the footpaths in the area. And if they failed in that duty, and you’ve suffered any kind of injury as a result, we should be able to help.
