A trip on a broken kerb has left a mum injured and requiring help at home to cope with the daily life of looking after her young children. The accident happened as the unsuspecting lady got out of her car and didn’t notice the damaged kerb stone as she turned towards the car to lock it. She tripped and fell landing very heavily on her back and needed to go to hospital by ambulance. The trip on the broken kerb accident caused soft tissue damage to her back, wrist and ankle. We have been asked to pursue a claim for injury compensation for the lady.
When slip or trip accidents happen they often leave the injured person with troubles which stretch far beyond the pain. Many people require help at home, help with transport as they are unable to drive or walk to the bus stop, many also have to have time off work and possibly lose wages as a result of the slip, trip or fall accident.
When a defect in the pavement or road occurs, there is usually a responsibility of the local authority to make repairs, to ensure the safety of the public.
Each year thousands of personal injury claims for slipping and tripping are made, many of which could be avoided if the correct maintenance work is carried out by the authority responsible.
