If you were enjoying a stroll around the village and tripped over a jutting pavement, you may need to find out what an injury lawyer in Tutbury could do for you. Having a fall can make a mess of your face and break your bones but it can also shake you up so badly that you may lose your confidence too.
This can have a resounding effect upon your life. However, the news is not all dismal. In fact, if the pavement that tripped you up jutted out from the other pavements around it for more than one inch, you may be able to claim compensation for what has happened to you.
To claim compensation, it has to be proven that a third party has acted in a negligent manner and this has caused you to have an accident that has harmed you. In the case of an accident similar to yours, you need to take a ruler and measure how much the pavement juts up.
While the ruler is in place, you should take a close up photograph. The reason for this is that the council, or whoever is responsible for the street that you tripped up on, has a duty of care to ensure that pavements do not jut up so much that they can cause an accident. If this duty is not fulfilled and you are hurt that it may be deemed that they have acted in a negligent manner.
