Claiming compensation for a defective paving stone

Wherever you are in the country it is normal to expect that public walkways and pavements are of an acceptable standard, and in the majority of cases this is true. However, sometimes this is not always the case and you could be left requiring medical attention as a result of a defective paving stone. It is the responsibility of the council or a road authority agency to ensure that pedestrians have safe access to walkways, so when this isn’t the case you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

If you have been left injured you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, which is why making a claim for compensation could be in your best interests. So whether you are walking to work or going for a run, receiving an injury from a defective paving stone could happen at any time and so you should always be prepared.

In what instances may I look to claim?

There are a number of circumstances where you might look to make a claim for compensation with regards to a defective paving stone, with some common examples including:

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have chipped a tooth

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

·         Claims against a negligent road authority agency

Who could be at fault in this situation?

In general, if you have been left suffering an injury as a result of a defective paving stone then you could look to make a claim against either the local council or a road authority agency who installed the paving stone. A defective paving stone can be very risky toward your health as they often go unnoticed, but if you are unfortunate enough to trip and fall as a result of a damaged slab you could be left with broken bones or even head injuries. As a result of this you could be entitled to receive a large payment in compensation as you could be left in a serious condition.
