Claiming compensation for a trip, slip or fall on a defective paving stone

Although you may not realise it, suffering from a trip, slip or fall could be very serious for your health and as such it should be treated with respect. Many people are under the impression that a slight trip will only result in minor injuries, but 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. Injuries can become even more serious if you land on a hard surface – which is to be expected after falling over a defective paving stone.

If you believe that you have suffered as a result of this but you are unsure what to do, then you may be in fact entitled to make a claim for compensation. A successful claim could help you to recoup any losses that you have incurred and could help you find a way to get you back on your feet.

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 I look to claim against in this situation?

If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from a trip, slip or fall as a result of a defective paving stone then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. In the majority of cases such as this, you could look to make a claim against either a local council or the road authority agency that was responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the walkway. In these kinds of scenarios it is likely that you could be left needing hospital treatment which in itself can be both costly and traumatic, so making a claim could be your best option to recoup any losses you have incurred.
