    Richmond upon Thames no win no fee* injury claims

    Most people are aware that as they walk around their streets and town centres the streets and pavements they walk on are the responsibility of either the local council or authority or any private organisation (such as a shopping centre).

    As a result, they have the right to be safe as they go about their business. This right extends from a legal responsibility known as a duty of care.

    If you have fallen or received injuries because the body or organisation responsible for maintenance of streets and pavements has failed in their duty of care, you have a legal right to claim compensation for your injuries. You can do so by contacting Richmond upon Thames no win no fee* injury claims solicitors.

    Pedestrian Area Only

    In recent times, it has become a trend among larger city centres to pedestrianise the whole of the shopping or town centre area. Obviously, this is done to ensure that the public are safe as they make their way through town but also to minimise congestion. Invariably, these pedestrian only areas tend to look more appealing to visitors too.

    However, many people have reported that in their efforts to repave areas such as pavements and existing roads, there is a danger. This is because the existing roads and pavements have all been paved using the same colours. For example, grey slabbing or cobbles are placed over the whole of the existing surface without any effort made to either lower pavements or raise roads.

    This, whilst looking appealing, can be extremely dangerous and as a result there have been many instances of falling or stumbling from pavements by people who naturally assume that the pavement and the former road area will be at the same level.

    It only takes a small stumble to create a large injury, especially if the person involved is particularly frail or elderly, and as a result the victim could end up with broken bones, spinal damage or a head injury if they were to have a particularly nasty fall. The victim would then have the right to make a claim for compensation through Richmond upon Thames no win no fee* injury claims solicitors.

    Any of these injuries could lead to pain and suffering by the victim as well as the potential for financial loss as they and their families are forced to take time away from work to either recuperate or tend to their relative as they do so. In either event, Richmond upon Thames ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors could seek the compensation which could ensure financial recompense.
