Loose Pavements

If you have suffered from a slip, trip or fall on loose pavements then it is your legitimate right to sue the property owner for proper compensation. Property owners, councils and landlords have a responsibility to keep their privatised walking areas, such as pavements, in proper order to ensure safety.  Uneven or loose pavements can result in severe injuries and in public areas it is the responsibility of the local council to fix loose paving slabs so as to avoid possibility of tripping.

Tripping can cause several injuries such as cuts, bruises, back pain, sprains, broken limbs and head injuries.  If the local council neglects its legal duty to keep its pavements in proper order, then they can be sued for breach of duty by the people injured by such pavements.  The claim amount depends on the severity of the injury.  To get the maximum claim amount the victim must take a photograph of the offending pavement and gather contact details of other victims who have suffered injury so as to make the compensation case stronger in the court. Loss of present and future wages should also be taken into account. With so many no win no fee compensation lawyers, getting compensation for a pavement injury has become easier than ever before. One of the most alluring features of opting for a professional compensation lawyer is that they include a freelance team of expert attorneys having sound expertise, experience and skills in getting 100% compensation.

It is advisable for the victim of the pavement accident to consult only solicitors who work on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. By opting for this, one can save plenty of time and money pursuing their Loose Pavements claim.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
