Injuries caused by uneven pavements, road surfaces and potholes are some of the most common accidents in the UK. Generally the roads and pavements are maintained by a local highways authority which has a responsibility to ensure that the roads are properly maintained in a reasonable condition. The busier the road or pavement the more resources should be committed to maintaining them in a reasonable condition.
Paving will never be completely flat and pedestrians must do what they can to avoid obvious hazards. If you trip and fall in the street you will not automatically succeed in a slip and fall injury claim for compensation. This is because it is accepted in law that no highway can be maintained to 100% perfection.
However, if the road or pavement where you were injured was not in a reasonable condition, then you may be entitled to get compensation. Cyclists are at particular risk from potholes which can cause serious cycling accident injuries.
We offer a free consultation to evaluate the circumstances of your accident, and to help you understand whether or not you have a claim for compensation.
