Claiming compensation for a failure to repair a defective paving stone

Here in the UK we are fortunate enough to have some of the highest quality road and pedestrian walkways throughout Europe, and with standards so high it can come as a surprise when you suffer an injury as a result of a defective paving stone. Despite this though, there are a high number of people who suffer from trips or falls each year but they often don’t claim as they think it isn’t serious enough to warrant one. This couldn’t be further from the truth as you could actually be left with a serious injury such as a broken bone, deep lacerations and even concussions – with problem becoming more serious when the damaged paving stone has failed to have been repaired.

So if you believe that you have been left with an injury as a result of a trip or fall because of the negligence of another, then making a successful claim for compensation could be your best option to get back on your feet and recoup any losses you have incurred.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have been left suffering injuries as a result of defective paving stone you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Some examples of where you may wish to make a claim include:

·         Claims if the defective paving stone is equal to or over 1inch in depth

·         Claims if you have been left brain damaged / concussed

·         Claims if you have suffered from a broken bone

·         Claims against a negligent road authority agency

Who might you look to make a claim against?

If you have been left with injuries as a result of a failure to repair a defective paving stone then you could be entitled to seek compensation to recoup any losses you have incurred. Claims of this nature are very severe and as such you could be entitled to a large settlement, with a claim most likely being directed at either a local council or a road authority agency whose job it is to maintain the standards of the roads and walkways. If you suspect that they have failed in this responsibility and you have been injured as a result, then you could look to make a claim against them.
