Compensation for a fall caused by a loose pavement slab

It is the responsibility of the council or a road authority agency to ensure the standards of the roads are maintained at a high standard, because otherwise pedestrians could risk becoming injured. We are fortunate enough to have some of the best roads and public walks in Europe, but sadly this isn’t always the case and people have been left with serious injuries as a result. If you have had an accident on a public pavement and you have been left requiring medical assistance as a result, then you could be able to make a claim for compensation.
