    Slips, trips, and falls on pavements and walkways are amongst the most common accidents dealt with by personal injury lawyers. Local councils have a responsibility to take preventative action by maintaining the safe condition of all pavements and walkways within their jurisdiction. However, they often fail to fulfil their obligations.

    What sort of injuries result from slips, trips, and falls?

    Slips, trips and falls can cause a variety of injuries, from bruised elbows and sprained wrists to shattered bones and severe head injuries.

    Who can sustain injuries in slips, trips, and falls?

    Anyone can sustain injuries as a result of slip, trip and fall accidents. Younger individuals tend to fare better than the elderly and infirm, as their bodies are better able to cope with the impact; yet even the most minor of injuries can result in pain, suffering and financial losses.

    What should I do in the event of a slip, trip and fall?

    If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a slip, trip and fall accident, please speak to the legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline for accurate legal advice. There are strict time limits in place when it comes to bringing a personal injury claim against your local council, so it is advisable to seek expert advice as quickly as possible.

    How can an accident lawyer help me with my claim?

    As with all personal injury claims, you will need to work with an accident lawyer to prove that your injury was caused as a result of your local council’s negligence. Upon appointing an accident lawyer, you will receive help with compiling evidence and presenting it to your local council.
