Many people injure themselves when simply walking on a pavement or pathway. They are fully within their rights to make a pavement trip claim. As pedestrians, we have a reasonable expectation that the pavement or footpath we are walking on is reasonably flat and hazard free. It is impossible for all of us to watch our steps closely at all times. Potholes, elevated edges and broken paving stones can all cause a slip, trip or fall.
Many local authorities and businesses now have extremely strict guidelines as to how they award compensation for a slip, trip or fall injury. These strict guidelines have arisen a result of the so called “compensation culture” in recent years. It is now more important than ever that genuine Claimants who have suffered an injury as a result of a slip, trip or fall that was not their fault, appoint a specialist personal injury solicitor to assist them.
Slip, trip and fall injuries affect thousands of people across the country each year, the injury and result can range in severity and CM Solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with a wide range of claims. It is the responsibility of the owner of the premises or property to ensure they adhere to a standard of care that protects you from injury and accidents. Try and take photographic evidence of where you suffered the injury as this will help us bring a successful compensation claim.
