Highway Slips, Trips and Fall Claims
When you are going about your daily routine, you expect the pavements you walk on to be safe, clear of obstructions and clean. However, sometimes, this is not the case, and tripping accidents on the highway do occur.
Many such accidents are minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, but unfortunately, more serious accidents take place, such as head injuries, broken limbs and otherwise.
In such circumstances, Tinsdills have extensive experience claiming compensation for tripping accidents on the highway. Our team of professional legal experts have a track record of successful claims for similar cases, and are ideally placed to advise and represent you.
Making A Claim For Slip & Fall Injuries On The Highway
In a large number of cases, in respect of accidents that take place on pavements, it is the local authority, or council, who are responsible for maintaining safe standards in accordance with the relevant legislation.
It may be the case that a curb or paving stone is uneven, a pothole exists, or that there is an unreasonable build up of rubbish, leaves or other debris on a pavement which has contributed to a trip or fall and has resulted in an accident and injury.
Legally, local authorities or private owners, such as supermarkets, will most likely be found at fault if a pothole is one inch or deeper, and a paving stone or curb is uneven by one inch or more. In many cases, this is the minimum for liability, or responsibility, to be found sufficient for compensation to be awarded.
However, it is often the case that compensation can still be claimed for less serious pavement defects, and here at Tinsdills we are very experienced at dealing with claims of every size and type.
It can often be a difficult task holding a local authority responsible, and they can be difficult to deal with in relation to claims for tripping accidents on the highway.
