Under the Highway’s Act 1980 highways are, “maintainable at public expense”. This means that, by law, the council is required to maintain its highways and keep them free from defects, this include any tripping or slipping hazards to pedestrians.
If the council fails in this statutory obligation and you become injured or ill as result, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. These types of injuries are very common and can often be very serious and so it’s essential you get advice from a highway personal injury claims expert.
