    Where to get pavement trip compensation advice


    The last thing most of us think about when we’re walking to work, shopping on the high street or meeting friends for lunch is being involved in an accident. But if the pavement in your area is uneven, or if there are cracked or loose paving stones or a damaged kerb, you could trip and suffer minor or even serious injuries. Many people don’t realise that they could make a personal injury claim after an accident like this – after all, you’re not to blame.

    Your local council could be held liable for your accident as it’s their responsibility to ensure pavements are maintained to a safe standard. If you want to find out more about making a claim, you can get pavement trip compensation advice from Accident Advice Helpline today.

    Pavement trip injuries

    Injuries sustained after tripping on a pavement can range from minor to extremely serious, for example:

    • Cuts and bruises
    • Broken bones – most common are fractured wrists, ankle and hips
    • Back, neck or shoulder injuries caused by impact
    • Facial injuries
    • Head injuries, if you hit your head as you fall
    • Lost teeth

    No matter how you have been injured, you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation after your accident – and you can get pavement trip compensation advice on a no-obligation basis from Accident Advice Helpline. With injuries such as broken bones or head injuries, you’ll need to take some time off work to recover, and this can affect your earnings. Luckily, when you make a claim, we’ll take this into account, so you could receive compensation for your loss of earnings as well as your injuries.

    Who will pay me compensation?

    Your local authority will normally be held responsible if you’ve tripped on damaged pavement, and they’ll be ordered to pay you compensation in the event your claim is successful. If you’re at all concerned about how you’ll pay expensive legal fees when making a claim, don’t be. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers not only offer pavement trip compensation advice, they also work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so you can make a claim no matter what your financial circumstances.
