All Local Authorities and landowners have a duty of care to ensure that the highways, pavements or their premises are maintained, free from obstruction and in a safe condition. If you suffer an accident due to a defective or uneven surface on a pavement or road, or as a result of defective premises, a local authority or private landowner may be liable to you for compensation.
The law provides that court proceedings must be issued in respect of any claim for personal injury within 3 years of the accident, save in exceptional circumstances.
We will advise you on the evidence and information we will need in order to win your case. The earlier you contact us after the accident, the better, as it may be necessary for us to inspect the scene of the accident, take any photographs or diagrams that are necessary, and interview any witnesses.
We will then arrange for you to be medically examined by an expert who will assess your injuries, in order that the correct figure can be calculated to compensate you fully for your injuries and other losses.
