If you or a close family member has suffered an injury as a result of being struck by a falling branch or tree, you may be able to receive compensation as a result of the accident.
Whether trees are on council-owned or privately-owned land, those who manage the property have a legal obligation to ensure that the trees are in good condition and pose no threat to any workers or passers-by.
Although these kinds of accidents might seem unforeseen, risk assessments should be in place to predict any danger – where this has not been done and an accident has followed anyone affected may ask a personal injury solicitor to proceed with a claim.
Failing to carry out annual checks on trees adjacent to the public pathway, could pose a direct risk to the public.
Serious cases of tree accidents have included severe injuries which have often prevented people from returning to work or even requiring long-term care and support, these include:
Whether you have suffered a head injury as a result of being hit by a failing branch or require round the clock care after being crushed, if liability for the incident can be ascribed to another party, it may be possible to claim head injury compensation.
YouClaim's specialist team of panal solicitors have a lot of experience when it comes to dealing with personal injury claims, including claims that have come about as the result of being injured due to tree debris or falling tress branches.
