Hundreds of thousands of pedestrians walk as many miles every day to a variety of destinations in their local areas. While the vast majority complete those journeys safely, some will end up having trips, slips and falls – and not all of them will be their fault. We all know accidents happen and sometimes those accidents are just that – accidents that happen for no particular reason. However there are situations where negligence on the part of another person results in the accident occurring.
We should reasonably expect our roads and pavements to be kept in good condition by the councils that are responsible for them. For the most part, this is true and they do a good job. However, there are cases where the conditions of the roads and pavements can deteriorate for a variety of reasons. This can potentially occur and if nothing is done in good time, people can end up being injured for tripping on a paving stone. This event can lead to some painful injuries as a trip of this kind can be difficult to compensate for to break your fall in time to prevent injuries from happening.
Could you claim compensation for this accident?
Tripping on a paving stone can be painful, as we have already seen. If you have injuries that you suffered because of an uneven or poorly maintained paving stone you do have the opportunity to claim compensation as a result. The best bet is to do this with the help of a professional injury compensation lawyer who has experience in this particular area of law.
