Potholes, cracked pavement, uneven surfaces, and other poor maintenance issues can cause pedestrians to slip and fall.
A trip on a hard surface such as a road or pavement can lead to a number of injuries, ranging from broken bones and lacerations to slipped discs, head injuries, and more. Many of these injuries can result in ongoing pain and discomfort, making everyday tasks difficult and often resulting in time off work. If you’ve fallen on an uneven or dangerous road surface, you could find yourself feeling embarrassed or hurt; but, in addition to this, you could also be eligible to make a compensation claim.
Depending on where you fell, you could bring a claim against the local council or private company responsible for the road maintenance, and potentially receive thousands of pounds in damages. If you are unsure about who was to blame or where you stand, you don’t need to come into a Kirkcaldy and Dysart law firm to find out. With Accident Advice Helpline, we make it easy to determine whether or not you could be owed compensation right away.
