Pavement trip compensation claims
Many people are injured by tripping over uneven or defective pavements each year.
Sometimes this results in only minor injuries such as cuts and bruises although it can also result in more serious injuries such as sprains or broken bones, as well as time off work for the person who has been injured.
If you have been injured due to a pavement trip, compensation may be available to you.
How do you know if you are entitled to compensation?
Pavement trip compensation claims must be made within three years of the date of the accident.
The accident must have been somebody else’s fault, which means that somebody else must have been responsible for the maintenance of the pavement in question.
It can help your chances of success if you take photographs of the pavement in question as evidence of its condition.
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking our unique 30-second online test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website.
How much compensation will you receive?
The amount of compensation you receive depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries. Because pain and suffering cannot be easily quantified, the amount of compensation you will receive cannot be guaranteed.
You can maximise your chance of receiving the full amount of compensation that you deserve by using a professional claims management company such as Accident Advice Helpline to help you claim compensation following an injury.
