Trip in the Street Injury Claims

Nasty tripping and slipping injuries in the street often arise as a result of the negligence or breach of legal duty of a local authority, council or other large public body.

Even if they occur in a public place, visitors are still owed a duty of care by the land owners.

Such organisations and authorities owe many legal duties to keep us all safe and free from tripping and slipping hazards and so often it is possible to make a successful claim for compensation.

People who are hurt in tripping and slipping accidents often fear that it was their own fault for not looking where they were going and so believe that they cannot claim.

However, the law protects accident victims and makes allowances for the fact that we cannot all watch our step every moment of the day and we are entitled to expect to have reasonable pathways and roads that are free of tripping hazards and slippery patches.

Local Authorities have duties to maintain inspect and repair roads and pavements and must keep records of how they are performing.

It is often possible to succeed in claims against them when they fail to meet their legal duties.

Tripping and slipping accident claims we have run successfully include:

  • Falls caused by defective roads and pavements such as seriously uneven patches, raised flags or kerbs or holes in the floor
  • Falls caused by broken or rocking flagstones

We have won many of these claims, so why not find out if you have a good claim?
