    I tripped over a pavement and got injured


    I tripped over a pavement and got injured

    Trips and falls are very common causes of injury, sometimes quite serious ones, and a stroll through the average town will soon show you why – there are rough and uneven pavement areas all over the place and they can be a real hazard as you walk along. If you have tripped over a pavement resulting in being injured you will know how painful the results can be, from severe bruising to broken bones. Some paving slabs can be covering quite deep holes and this makes the area even more dangerous. Councils vary in how carefully they maintain footpaths but the sad fact is that many only deal with problems when it is too late.

    If you have tripped over a pavement you can claim personal injury compensation

    If you have tripped over a pavement and been injured you should call Accident Advice Helpline without delay. If you have just got bruises and no serious damage to yourself you may not be able to claim substantial compensation but if you lose any time from work resulting in loss of earnings then there is definitely reason to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation. It is everyone’s right to expect to be able to walk down the street without being injured and so if the people in charge of maintaining the walkway have not lived up to normal expectations of care, then their insurers will be asked to pay reasonable compensation. Many people who have been injured worry that they will be asked to pay a fee but our lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis, so the costs are deducted from any compensation. So there is no need to worry and if you have tripped over a pavement and been injured it is certainly worth giving us a call on our Freephone number. Our patron, Esther Rantzen, is happy to recommend us and when a consumer champion trusts us, so can you.

    Trips and falls can have long term effects

    Trips can be very serious in the elderly especially so if a relative has been injured who cannot speak up for themselves, you can call on their behalf. They may be worried that they will have to appear in court but this is highly unlikely and if their fall has seriously impacted their quality of life then they will almost certainly qualify for personal injury compensation even though there is no immediate financial loss to them.
