Thankfully, most slips, trips and falls on public pavements lead to nothing more than few small cuts bruises and a little bit of embarrassment. However, in some cases an accident sustained due to a road or pavement defect can lead to serious and sometimes life changing injuries.
Accidents sustained due to defects in pavements can leave victims with severe sprains, deep lacerations, broken bones and head injuries including concussions. Often these severe injuries will force patients to undergo corrective surgery, leaving them with scarring or permanent discomfort for the rest of their lives.
In addition, defects on roads can be the cause of serious injuries too. Issues such as potholes and loose gravel can lead to accidents.
If you have suffered a personal injury due to a defect on the road or a pavement contact the expert solicitors at Forbes and claim the compensation you deserve.

These cleanliness issues include instances such as councils allowing rubbish to build up, mud build ups, dirt build ups and in some cases instances where bird droppings have posed a slipping danger to the public.
If you have suffered a personal injury due to a defect in a pavement or road, we would recommend that you take certain steps to prove that the accident was someone else's fault.
