When you hear of someone having a trip in a pavement related accident you might think that they couldn’t possibly do any serious harm to themselves – after all, toddlers fall over all the time and usually sustain nothing more than a few bumps, bruises and maybe a graze to the knee.
In some cases this is true – nothing is seriously injured and the worst might be a dent to your pride.
However, in other instances people can be quite seriously injured by what appears to be an innocuous accident if they sustain broken bones.
If you have been injured in a pavement accident then you might want to make a compensation claim in West Linton.

If you have been injured in an accident which you think was someone else’s fault then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in West Linton.
- If your accident was caused as a result of a broken paving slab that should have been mended.
- If you sprained your ankle because of a large pothole in the ground that should have been filled in or cornered off.
- If you tripped over a piece of broken paving slab which should have been rectified.
One of the most important factors in establishing whether you have good grounds for making a personal injury claim for financial compensation is that the accident in question, and therefore the injuries, could have been prevented – in other words they were caused by someone else’s recklessness, negligence or failure to do their job properly.
