Compensation for Pavement Injuries

The highway authorities have a duty to maintain the roads and footpaths in the UK. Failure to uphold this duty means that members of the public who injure themselves on a public pavement are more likely to be able to claim compensation.

Accidents do, of course, happen from time to time and you must take care of yourself and have your own safety in mind when you are walking along the pavement. At the same time, the highway authority should be inspecting roads and pavements on a regular basis for cracks and other faults and they should be correcting defects. If you should trip and hurt yourself on a pavement that has been neglected by the authorities, your claim is likely to be more successful.

Paving slabs that are raised or cracked can cause frequent accidents, as they are often tripped over. If you should find yourself the victim of a public pavement accident, the first course of action is to note:

  • The date and time and location of the incident.
  • You should have this logged in the accident book.
  • If there are witnesses, ask for their details as these will prove useful when the evidence of the accident is gathered together by your solicitor, should you choose to pursue a claim.
  • Should you have the opportunity to take a photograph of the damaged pavement, this will also prove useful.
  • You might need medical attention after your fall.

Often pavement accidents affect the elderly in a serious way as hips can be fractured and the claim for compensation may be quite substantial if this is the case.
If there is a first aider on the scene, they may be able to help you, or you may need to seek gp treatment or hospital treatment.

We will support and guide you on how you could go about making a personal injury claim. Simply contact us, giving us the details of your claim and we will assess your case and give you helpful advice on what to do next.

Our policy is no win, no fee*, so you have nothing to lose by enquiring about your claim today to see if we can help you seek compensation. You may, after all, be eligible for compensation. Our panel of solicitors will assess your case and will act on your behalf in hopefully achieving a satisfactory resolution to your personal injury.
