High streets are surprisingly dangerous places for pedestrians. Where ever you look there are hazards that range in how severe your injuries could be. From upturned or broken paving slabs to potholes and even out of control vehicles coming off of the road. If an accident happens that was not your fault yet you suffered as a result you could make injury claims in Crieff.
Depending on where you are it can be different authorities who are responsible for maintaining the safety of the footpaths across the high street. This includes removing and replacing broken paving slabs and filling in any potholes which have appeared.
If you have an accident where you trip over a broken paving slab and get injured your case for compensation would be taken against the authority which should have repaired the issue before anyone got hurt. The same applies for any broken curb stones.
Although you can’t see the other party it doesn’t mean they don’t exist so if an accident does happen don’t get put off by thinking it won’t go anywhere. By making injury claims in Crieff you are standing up for yourself so get in touch with a legal representative.
