    Winter ice – a possible claim for compensation?

    As we enter the winter months, there are many people up and down the country hoping that the winter will not be as cold and harsh as last year. This is not because they do not like snow or prefer the grey, dull rainy days that we sometimes get in the UK, but because they were hurt last winter.

    But why?

    Your local council spends time, money and effort in gritting pavements and roads so that the country does not grind to a halt. They will only grit certain areas, simply because they do not have the resources or the staffing to cover all areas. City and town centres should be clear so that you, the pedestrian, can move around easily and without fear of falling.

    Is this always the case?

    Unfortunately, no. Some councils run out of the salty grit needed for pavements and roads, meaning some stretches remained untreated. As a result, some people fall. Thankfully, many injuries are minor and soon heal, but for other people they need the help of Accident Advice Helpline and injury claims solicitors in Alcester.

    A heavy landing

    Slipping on ice can be a painful experience. It can leave you with bruising, and in some cases people have experienced:

    • Broken bones;
    • Head traumas;
    • Severe haematomas;
    • Cuts and lacerations; and
    • Shock and fear of leaving their home.

    The elderly can be at the most risk, especially from broken hips as a result of them slipping on untreated icy pavements or roads.

    Can injury claims solicitors in Alcester help you?

    There are three criteria that must be met before an injury solicitor in Alcester can take your compensation case further:

    • You must have received medical treatment for your injuries, from your own GP or from the local hospital. Some people were unfortunately hospitalised due to their injuries;
    • You must make your claim within three years of the date of your accident; and
    • The incident must not have been your fault, but that of another person or company.
