Pavement Slip and Trip Compensation Claim

Pavements accidents are quite common and this is because of defective pavements which lead to slips, trips and falls. When a person slips or trips on a public pavement due to no fault and suffers personal injuries, a compensation claim can be made against the local council responsible for the maintenance of the pavement.

Compensation is essential following a no fault accident on a public pavement because it will help the victim recover hospital bills, costs of care if the injury was serious and other financial losses that the victim suffered. Local authorities must ensure that the safety of the public is not put at risk whilst carrying out repair work or if the pavement is defective. They must ensure that safety measures are adopted to avoid any mishap.
