Making a Pavement Accident Claim
In order to make a claim following a pavement trip, slip or fall, you will be required to identify the individual or public body at fault. Local councils have a responsibility to maintain the pavements and other public rights of way within their jurisdiction. If your pavement accident was caused by any of the following, it is highly likely that the council responsible for the area in which the accident occurred was at fault:
- Raised or cracked pavement
- Poorly laid paving slabs
- Tree roots
- Broken road signs
- Poorly aligned or raised kerbs
Even if you are concerned that the accident was partly your fault, because you were on the phone or were not looking where you were going, you may still be able to make a claim, as it is the council's responsibility to ensure pavements are kept in a good state of repair.
Ensuring Your Pavement Trip Claim is Successful
If you have been injured due to a local council's negligence, you are entitled to claim financial compensation, however not all claims are successful. In order to ensure that you have the best possible chance of claiming the compensation you deserve, collect some or all of the following information:
- Photographic evidence of the hazard that caused your pavement trip, ideally with a ruler or tape measure in shot demonstrating the height of the raised paving, kerb or the depth of a pothole. If you don't have a ruler or tape measure, use an object to show the scale, such as a coin.
- Photographs should also show the hazard from all directions, and in relation to a landmark such as an easily recognisable building, demonstrating the location of the hazard.
- Contact information for any witnesses to the pavement accident.
If you were unable to collect any of the above information, it is still worth contacting an experienced pavement accident solicitor to discuss a potential claim.
