Common causes of injury

If a public footpath, street or road has not been maintained properly, accidents are often caused by:

  • Uneven paving and kerbstones
  • Debris
  • Uncovered manholes
  • Unsafe roadworks
  • Insufficient lighting
  • Potholes
  • Slipping on icy floors

If you have suffered an injury whilst using a public footpath, road or street, YouClaim can help you make a successful claim for compensation.

Who is responsible?

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 themselves. Likewise, if work must be carried out on a footpath, contractors and utility companies must ensure pedestrians are safe.

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.
