Are you making a ‘no win, no fee’ Epsom and Ewell claim after tripping on a kerb?
If you’re walking in public area, the chances are that you will try and avoid any potential hazards. Whilst we may be used to looking out for vehicles or other people on the street, we may not think to look down and ensure that the pavement beneath our feet is safe and secure.
Unfortunately, many councils are failing to replace paving stones when necessary. Once paving stones are cracked or loose, they will only get worse unless they are replaced or repaired and this can lead to a number of accidents. If, for example, a paving stone is sticking up, someone could easily trip over it. This could be even more dangerous if a person using a wheelchair or pushing a pram doesn’t see the hazard as they could suffer a serious injury if they were to fall.
Similarly, if a paving stone is loose, it can be very uneven and could cause someone to fall or to twist their ankle. Whilst this may not be the most serious injury that can occur, it can be very painful and someone could make a ‘no win, no fee’ Epsom and Ewell compensation claim as a result.
When this type of incident occurs, it’s very important to report it. If the council do take action, you could prevent anyone else from suffering a similar injury. Of course, you can do more than simply report the incident, if you choose to. As long as you can show that the incident wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Epsom and Ewell claim and you could be awarded compensation for the harm that you suffered.
If you were hurt whilst in a public area, there is a chance that other people will have been around when you were hurt or injured and they may have witnessed the incident. If so, their statements could be used when it comes to making your ‘no win, no fee’ Epsom and Ewell compensation claim as they could confirm how the incident occurred and that it wasn’t your fault.
However, if you were alone when you were hurt, there’s no need to panic as you could still make a successful ‘no win, no fee’ Epsom and Ewell compensation claim. If you want to find out more about how to make your no win no fee Epsom and Ewell claim, we can help.
