The local Council has a duty to ensure that pavements and roads are inspected, maintained and repaired on a frequent basis to prevent hazards arising from potholes, cracks in the pavement and uneven paving slabs. If you believe your fall was caused by a hazard left as a result of failure to maintain the public highway then please contact us to discuss your accident and injury.
Injuries following trips and slips on public highways could result in significant injury, pain and loss of earnings. We have extensive experience in successfully recovering compensation in these circumstances.
Trips or slips can result in months off work and leave individuals requiring extensive care and assistance from both family members and professionals.
This type of case is usually funded by a conditional fee agreement, usually known as a ‘no win no fee’ agreement. For further information, please see Funding Your Case.
