Claims for faulty pavement slabs on private roads

If you have been injured as a result of a faulty pavement slab then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. An incident such as this can be very serious and could leave you in need of medical assistance, so it is important that you are able to prove that negligence has taken place if you want to make a successful claim. If your accident was on private property such as a house or piece of land which is privately owned by either an individual or a conglomerate, then you would be able to make a compensation claim if you can prove it was the fault of the land owner or occupier and they had suitable insurance in force or the means to pay personally.


Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have suffered as result of a faulty pavement slab on a private road, then you may want to consider making a claim for compensation. Some common examples of where you may wish to make a claim include:

·         Claims against a the property owner

·         Claims for a failure to put up adequate signposting

·         Claims if you have damaged muscle/ligaments

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left requiring a walking aid.

Who may be at fault in this situation?

If you have been left injured on private property as a result of a negligent owner, then you could look to make a claim against them for failing to adhere to health and safety regulations. It is their responsibility to ensure that it is fit for purpose and if it isn’t, appropriate measures should be taken to prevent an accident from occurring. In order to make a successful claim as a result of an injury though, then it is essential that you can prove that the owner of the road has played a role in this; otherwise you may find your chances of success in court to be very slim.
