    Compensation for pavement fall back injuries


    Compensation for pavement fall back injuries

    The back is a complex structure which is a network of joints, nerves, muscles and bones, so it can often be difficult to treat back injuries. Even minor strains and sprains can be very painful and take months or years to heal. So if you’ve suffered pavement fall back injuries after tripping on uneven paving stones or slipping on a damaged kerb, you could find you’re unable to work and your mobility may even be affected, as a back injury can affect your legs, shoulders and neck too.

    Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of members of the public claim personal injury compensation for pavement fall back injuries ranging from minor injuries to more serious ones. Why not find out more about the claims process by getting in touch with our personal injury advisors today for confidential, no-obligation advice?

    The aftermath of back injuries

    After a back injury, your mobility can be affected and you may be unable to stand or sit still for extended periods of time, which could make returning to work a struggle. Back pain can also lead to shoulder and neck pain or headaches, as well as pain in your legs, usually caused by a slipped disc. Chronic back pain may never be fully resolved, affecting your quality of life and the ability to do things you once took for granted, such as heavy lifting or playing with your children. So who is to blame for your accident? If you’ve caught your shoe in a cracked paving slab or stumbled on an uneven, loose paving stone on the street, you’re not to blame – your local council is responsible for maintaining pavements to a safe standard.

    Reporting your accident to them is a good idea, but you should also find out whether you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation by getting in touch with us. You could even take the 30-second test on our website, to see how much compensation you could claim.

    Negligence and personal injury claims

    Personal injury claims usually happen because somebody has been negligent – in the case of a pavement fall, it’s likely to be your local council that is to blame. You can find out if you’re eligible to claim compensation or just get answers to any questions you have by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today. Our experienced team of advisors have been helping customers since 2000 and we have plenty of success stories to share.
