London Trip and Fall Accidents on Cracked Sidewalks

Although trips and falls caused by defective sidewalks can cause minor injuries, some people may experience major injuries that are severe enough to keep them from being able to complete basic daily tasks and require years of medical treatment and rehabilitative therapy.

If you have been injured after walking on a defective or broken sidewalk, there is a possibility that you can seek compensation to cover various expenses, including the cost of your medical bills. Some people seek compensation to help cover the wages they have missed out on earning due to taking time off work to recover from their injuries. By working with our London trip and fall accident lawyers, you may be able to recover compensation for financial losses you have incurred because of your injuries. To learn more, call 1-800-JUSTICE and receive a free initial consultation.

The Types of Injuries a Person Can Sustain

An individual can easily sustain different types of injuries when walking on a sidewalk that is defective and damaged. The most common injuries that tend to occur as a direct result of defective sidewalks include:

  • Head injuries. Many people hit their heads when they fall to the ground. If a person trips because the sidewalk is uneven or damaged and hits his or her head, that person could experience a blackout and even end up with a concussion, which is extremely dangerous. Some concussions lead to lasting brain injuries that negatively impact the way a person thinks, feels, and acts.
  • Broken bones. It is not uncommon for someone to break a bone when he or she falls on the sidewalk. Because the sidewalk is made of rough, a hard landing could cause a person to break an arm, leg, or even a wrist.
  • Open wounds. Depending on where the person lands and how it all happens, he or she could end up with open wounds and gashes.

The Best Steps to Take After an Injury

If you get hurt when walking on a defective sidewalk, the first thing you should do is visit the hospital to have scans taken and to find out more on the extent of your injuries. Upon receiving treatment in the hospital, you should attempt to take pictures of the sidewalk to use as evidence to support your claims when filing a lawsuit. It is in your best interest to find a lawyer with experience helping people who have been in situations like yours.
