Thinking of making a compensation claim in Porth?
If you have been injured in the last three years in an accident that you can prove was not your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Porth, if that is where you live. You have to have received medical treatment for your injuries and you should have sought it as soon as you could have done after your accident.
Let’s picture the following scenario. You are out shopping with your friends, when all of a sudden your high heel gets stuck in a crack on the pavement. Before you know it, you are lying on the pavement with a twisted ankle. We have all been in a similar situation (maybe minus the heels if you are male) and most of us simply seek medical attention and try to forget the horrible ordeal. We would often be the first to blame ourselves, or our footwear choice, on the accident, but if it has taken place due to a poor surface you can make a compensation claim in Porth.
Who is to blame?
If you have had an accident due to an uneven surface or crack in the pavement, the local council is liable for your injury. You pay tax for a reason and this means the council should ensure the roads are pavements are kept safe. If this has happened to you, Accident Advice Helpline can provide support and a specialised solicitor who will take you through your compensation claim in Porth so you can have peace of mind. As long as you are positive that your accident was due to the uneven surface and not just going over your ankle or something similar, you are entitled to seek a compensation claim.
The council are responsible for our safety when it comes to road and pavement surfaces, and are sometimes too quick to defend themselves with claims of low budgets, etc. which haven’t enable them to fix the surfaces. The cost of claims would amount to much more than ensuring the roads and pavements are repaired to an adequate level. Equally, if there are obstructions caused by your local council which have caused you an injury, you can call up and start the proceedings for your compensation claim in Porth. The council have a duty of care as far as these things are concerned, and any injuries which result from negligence should be taken very seriously.
