    Raised kerb in Grimsby injures elderly woman

    Raised kerb in Grimsby injures elderly woman

    75-year-old Pam Loughran suffered injuries after she tripped on a raised kerb on George Street in Grimsby. Pam suffered a broken wrist, cuts to her nose and chin and bruises to her hands and face in the incident, which left her shaken. If you or someone you love has been injured in a trip or fall caused by a raised kerb or uneven paving, your local council could be held liable for your accident. Call us to find out if you have a viable claim – our personal injury advisors are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Pam was crossing the road when she tripped up the kerb and fell – luckily she was helped by several members of the public. Whilst she has not contacted North East Lincolnshire Council about the raised kerb, she could be in a position to claim personal injury compensation, particularly if the council has received complaints about the kerb previously.

    Who’s responsible for your accident?

    Tripping over because you’re wearing 5-inch heels is likely to be your own fault, but if you have suffered a similar accident to the one above, you might be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. Tripping over a raised kerb, catching your heel in a badly cracked pavement slab or falling due to uneven pavement could leave you seriously injured, and it’s your local council’s responsibility to ensure that pavements and roads in your area are safe.
