Slip Trip or Fall Claims

If you have had an accident that was the result of a Slip Trip or Fall on a pavement than you may be able to claim public liability compensation against the Local Council.
 
Many people are unaware that they are entitled to make a claim for public liability compensation when they have been injured in a Slip Trip or Fall on a public pavement. However, these types of compensation claims are very common and there are many cases where people have been awarded compensation payments as a result of this type of accident.
 
Local Councils have a duty of care, to ensure that the pavements in their council area are safe and hazard free. If you are injured on a pavement because you have slipped, tripped or fallen over a hazard, such as a broken section of the pavement then it is possible that the Local Council has breached their duty of care and will be required to pay you compensation for your personal injuries.
 
It is very important that you talk to expert personal injury lawyers as soon as possible after your accident. Getting legal advice as soon as possible means, that evidence in support of your claim for compensation can be gathered including photographs of the place the accident occurred, showing the hazard as well as getting statements from witnesses who saw the accident.
 
If your claim for personal injury compensation is successful you may be entitled to the following:
  • A lump sum payment to cover all your past and future medical and rehabilitation expenses.
  • A lump sum payment to compensate you for any past or future loss of wages and superannuation.
  • Lump sum payment of to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
  • A lump sum payment to cover any past and future care you may require as well as payment for any other needs you have as a result of your injuries such as wheelchairs and home modification.
