Your local highways authority has a duty to maintain footpaths and roads but all too often, a loose paving stone or an uneven path or grate can lead to you tripping and falling – and being badly injured.
If this has happened to you, you may have a valid personal injury claim for compensation.
The local highway authority's duty is to have an appropriate system in place to inspect the roads and footpaths for defects on a regular basis. Busier roads and footpaths require more frequent inspection. Any defects should be repaired – especially in cases where complaints have been received. If this has not happened, your claim is more likely to succeed.
Have you been unfortunate in being hurt because of a slip, trip or fall on a footpath or road? If so you should take details of any witnesses to the accident and take photographs of the defect and the surrounding area as soon as possible.
You should also report the accident and attend your GP surgery or hospital and make sure that you explain how and where your injuries were sustained.
All of these things will help you with your claim for slip and trip compensation. Ring Recovery Assist today and speak to one of our expert personal injury solicitors, who are experienced in dealing with claims for compensation following falls on footpaths and roads.
