Footpath Accidents*

Outside of the home, a footpath accident is one of the most common ways of sustaining an injury and, at a time when government resources for making repairs to damaged footpaths are stretched, footpath accidents are becoming more common and leading to a growth in the number of footpath accident compensation claims.

A report published by the Health Research Board showed that the most common injury suffered in a footpath accident was a broken limb – which not only frequently occurred on a perceptively level surface, but also resulted in the longest stays in hospital amongst the “unintentional injury” category. Consequently, people suffering from a footpath accident experience longer periods away from work and their families.

Making a Footpath Accident Compensation Claim

In many cases, victims of footpath accidents are made early settlement offers that in no way reflect the inconvenience, pain and loss of earnings suffered. Time should be allowed between the incident and making a claim for footpath accident compensation to permit a full medical assessment to be carried out and any possible long term health complications to be discovered, particularly when there are injuries to the head. This is not to say that you should delay contacting a solicitor experienced in injury compensation claims.
