Road & Pavement Defect Claims

Road & Pavement Defect Claims

Poorly maintained roads and pavements pose a serious safety hazard to the public, and are one of the leading causes of accidents in the UK. Local authorities such as counsels have a legal duty to ensure road surfaces are maintained to a sufficient standard in order to drastically reduce the risk of harm.

Whilst it is accepted that pedestrians and cyclists must assume some level of responsibility in terms of avoiding obvious hazards, where a defective surface falls below the accepted standards resulting in injury you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim.

Unfortunately as the imperfections in the surface worsen, so to does the likely hood of sustaining an injury, especially for cyclists who are the most likely to be affected by inadequate road surfaces.
