Who is responsible for an injury on a public footpath?

If a public footpath, street or road has not been maintained properly by the local government, they can be held responsible for the injuries caused by their negligence. Accidents are often caused by:

  • Uneven paving
  • Debris
  • Unsafe roadworks
  • Insufficient lighting

If a public right of way is unsafe, local government should carry out repair work or clearly signpost its condition to ensure people avoid injuring. If they do not take the appropriate action to prevent injuries from occurring, they can be held responsible and made to pay compensation to injured members of the public.
