Making a compensation claim for tripping on an uneven path abroad might seem daunting for most people.

This might be too much for you, especially if you are nursing injuries.

If you have been the victim of a slip or trip caused by uneven paving abroad, then contact us today and let us help you with your compensation claim.
Why should I make the claim?
Many people are not aware that they can make a compensation claim for injuries sustained as a result of tripping on uneven pavement abroad. However, making a compensation claim against the local council or the body charged with the responsibility of maintaining the pavement should always be considered. The compensation awarded will help you recover expenses, such as medical fees and prescription costs.
Additionally, the claim will get the attention of the local authority and (hopefully) action will be taken to ensure the path is repaired, which will help prevent further accidents and injuries.Open Claim Calculator
How much will I receive?
The amount awarded as the result of making a tripping on uneven path abroad claim depends on a number of factors. Key among these is the compensation law of the country where the accident took place. While some personal injury claims from accidents abroad can be brought and handled in the UK, others may have to be settled overseas. Your personal injury solicitor will calculate the estimated value of your claim, based on the amount awarded for similar cases in the past.
We will keep you informed throughout the course of the entire claim process and our solicitors will work hard to ensure you win the compensation you deserve.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
In order to make a successful claim, the following criteria must be met:
- The claim must be made within a specified time period. In the UK this is three years, though it varies from one country to another
- You must have sustained injuries and received medical treatment for them
- You must have evidence to prove the accident happened due the relevant authority’s negligence
