About access ramp injuries

In line with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), all public buildings are legally obliged to provide disabled access for wheelchair users, which is usually done in the form of a wheelchair ramp.

Although the ramps provided are meant for individuals who are wheelchair bound, other people who may find it difficult to climb steps, such as the elderly, blind people or parents with pushchairs, might also use the disabled access ramps to reach the entrance of a building.

DDA regulations stipulate minimum width, gradient, surface specifications and other protective measures that should facilitate safe and easy usage.  Wheelchair ramps not built in accordance with DDA regulations are not only unlawful, they also place ramp users in danger of injury.  If a ramp is too narrow, steep or has a slippery surface, this presents a tripping or slipping hazard which could be inconvenient for a non-wheelchair users, and even more problematic for a wheelchair user.
