Pavement trip accidents
We don’t tend to think of pavements as trip hazards and for many of us we use them every day without even thinking about injuries. Councils keep most pavements in a good condition which prevents potential accidents from happening but if you have been the unfortunate victim of a pavement trip accident, you could be entitled to compensation if the accident was not your fault.
Did you trip over a pavement which was in state of disrepair? Did you trip over an uneven path which caused you to trip? Many trips luckily do not result in serious injury but sometimes a trip can lead to broken bones, dislocation and even an internal injury if there was an object on the ground which impaled the victim.
