SLIPS & TRIPS CLAIMS
Slips, trips and falls are caused by a variety of hazards, such as potholes and stray tree roots; raised paving slabs are a common trip hazard (generally they must be raised in excess of one inch in order to claim). It is your council's duty in accordance with The Highways Act to ensure that streets and footpaths are safe and to show that they have a regular system of maintenance, inspection and repair in place. If you have been injured due to a slip, trip or fall on the public highway and feel that your council has neglected to see or rectify the hazard, then you are entitled to make a fall claim.
