Walking along the pavement can result in injuries if you trip over an uneven paving slab. Accidents taking place on pavements due to defects can cause nasty personal injuries including cuts, bruises, lacerations, injury to the wrists and hands, broken bones and even head injuries.
Many people blame themselves if they slip or trip on a public pavement. Many people feel embarrassed and just try to get out of the place as quickly as possible without thinking that they have been injured. The sensible thing to do following an accident on a pavement is to take pictures of the defect. This can be helpful to prove that the pavement was not safe
If you have been involved in a pavement accident, you must consider making a pavement accident claim.
