Personal injury compensation claims

Slips and Trips

Have you suffered a trip, slip or fall on a public highway or in a public place?

The Council is under a duty to maintain pavements and public highways for public use. Many serious injuries, particularly fractures, can arise from failure to fulfil that duty.  Circumstances include:

  • Falling due to a defective pavement
  • Injuries to motorists, cyclists and motorcyclists due to potholes in the road
  • Tripping over raised paving stones or missing kerbstone

How much compensation can I expect for my injuries?

Although the amount of compensation for each injury varies dramatically, we can give you an approximate estimate of the amounts that are commonly awarded for different types of injury. Simply enter your details into the Compensation Calculator on this page for an instant compensation estimate.
