Alternatively, you can visit our website and take our unique and specially designed 30-second test. By answering a few short questions, you will be able to find out if you are eligible to make a claim. The test also doubles up as a compensation calculator, so you can have a good idea of how much your compensation claim might be worth.
To get a more accurate idea of how much compensation you can expect to receive, you will need to speak to an injury lawyer in Croyde Bay. They will be in a better position to look at all of the facts of your case, from the nature of injuries, the anticipated length of recovery, any permanent damage caused, out-of-pocket expenses and loss of earnings, as all of these can be taken into account when considering how much compensation someone is entitled to receive.
Unfortunately, it is fairly common to trip up on uneven pavement. Sometimes it is simply a case of a trip which, while it might be embarrassing if someone has seen you, invariably results in nothing more than a dent in your pride and perhaps a stubbed toe, and does not warrant a conversation with an injury lawyer in Croyde Bay.
On other occasions, the results can be a little more serious. Tripping on a raised paving slab can result in a fall which, if you land awkwardly, can cause serious injuries from sprains to broken bones. This is especially true for older members of the public.
Of course, your injury lawyer in Croyde Bay will advise you that not all accidents are eligible for personal injury claims. It should go without saying that pedestrians should do all they can to avoid injury, and in the vast majority of cases this is the situation.
However, there are some circumstances where this is not entirely possible due to the poorly maintained nature of the pavement in question. If this is the case in your situation, let your injury lawyer in Croyde Bay know and they will be able to argue that it is the responsibility of the local council or highways authority to have maintained the pavement in question, and by them failing to do so you have been injured as a result.
This is also the case with roads that have not been properly gritted. If you slip on a patch of ice that should have been gritted but was not for some reason, then you might be able to make a compensation claim. As every case is unique, and there are many factors to be taken into account, it is important that you discuss your accident and the circumstances surrounding it in detail with your injury lawyer in Croyde Bay.
