Claim for a Trip on Pavement
Slips, trips and falls on pavements can cause painful injuries. Many people don’t realise that they can make a compensation claim to get the support they need during their recovery and into the future.
Every highway authority has a duty to maintain roads and footpaths. If a road surface has been poorly maintained and you’ve tripped and injured yourself because of it, then we can help you make it right.
