Road Accidents

If you have been injured in a tripping accident whilst crossing the road that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim. Councils have a duty of care to ensure that the roads are in a safe condition for the public to use. If you tripped over a defect in the road then the Council may have breached their duty.

Our specialist lawyers have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for clients who have sustained injuries as a result of tripping whilst crossing the road. Our lawyers have significant experience in dealing with minor injury claims through to catastrophic life changing injury claims.

What should I do if I have been involved in a tripping accident whilst crossing the road?

  • If possible, take photographs of the area and measurements if appropriate.
  • Do not report the accident to the Council until you have spoken to us.
  • Get any witness details.
