Have you been hurt because of non fault accidents in Southampton?
We have all been there – one minute you are walking along happily minding your own business, the next you have stubbed your toe on an upturned piece of pavement. At best, this is all that happens; however, for some people they can actually trip and ultimately fall as a result of this incident.
If you do fall and land awkwardly, there is a chance that you will do more than bruise your ego. While many of us imagine that such an accident will do nothing more than cause a few bumps and bruises, the simple truth of the matter is that for some serious injuries can result from what appears to be a very innocent incident.
If you have been injured as a result of a problem with pavement then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to make a claim for non fault accidents in Southampton.
The ability to make a ‘no win, no fee’ Southampton claim when it comes to accidents involving pavements depends on establishing that something has gone wrong and that someone else is liable for it.
You cannot possibly make a ‘no win, no fee’ in Southampton claim just because you have tripped, there must be a reason that you tripped and that reason must be possible to prevent. For example, if there is a significant defect with the pavement, perhaps a pothole that stands an inch above the rest of the surface, then that would present a significant tripping hazard and should be dealt with accordingly by the local authority. If this is not done and someone is injured as a result then it is highly likely that a ‘no win, no fee’ in Southampton claim will ensue and compensation will be awarded.
Of course, tripping accidents don’t just happen as a result of problems with the pavement itself. It is also for possible for people to trip over rubbish that has been left lying around on the ground. It may be that the owner of the property on which the rubbish is present is to blame, or if there has been a problem with refuse collection again the local authority might be at fault. It is the role of our ‘no win, no fee’ in Southampton solicitors to establish where liability lies, and what the legal premise for this is. Once that is discovered then a claim can be made and compensation will be sought.
