    Accident Solicitor in Midlothian


    Do you need to make a claim with an accident solicitor in Midlothian because of a broken pavement?

    Due to their continued and constant use, pavements and paved areas do need to be replaced fairly regularly. In addition to this, they should be properly maintained and repairs should be conducted as soon as they are needed. If paving stones aren’t maintained properly, they could become dangerous. If people are injured or fall because of a broken paving stone, they may even go on to make compensation claims with an accident solicitor in Midlothian.

    If you’re walking in a public area and you trip on a loose or broken paving stone, there’s a good chance that an accident solicitor in Midlothian will be able to help you to make a claim. As local councils are often responsible for maintaining public highways, you may need to direct your claim at them.

    However, in some cases, private companies may be responsible for paved areas. Many shopping malls, for example, have outdoor areas and mall and shop owners are responsible for ensuring that the public are safe whilst using them.

    If their paving is damaged in some way and someone gets hurt as a result, they could face compensation claims and they may be forced to pay claimants a considerable amount of compensation.

    How badly have you been injured?

    If you’ve slipped or tripped on a damaged paving stone, you could have suffered a number of different injuries. For example, you could have hurt your ankle as you tripped or injured yourself as you landed on the floor.
