Defective pavements are, unfortunately, a common cause of personal injuries. Although councils do try to repair defects in a timely manner, their efforts are often fruitless. If you have had a trip, slip or fall, and have suffered a personal injury as a result, you should not suffer in silence. You may be eligible to file a 100% no-win, no-fee compensation claim through Accident Advice Helpline and a lawyer in Skipsea.

- You must be able to prove that your accident caused you to suffer a personal injury. You must be able to demonstrate that your accident resulted in a personal injury, nd that you were forced to seek medical attention in the immediate aftermath of your accident.
