Client tripped on defective paving slab received compensation from housing association

Accident in Public Place

Defects in the paving slabs had been previously reported to the housing association responsible for their upkeep but to no avail. So when our client tripped and was injured, a successful compensation claim was made.

What we did

Our solicitor took on the case and pursued a claim against the housing association who had failed to act on previous complaints about the hazardous pavement.


Our client was helping her mother to the car when she tripped on a defective paving slab, as she put her foot on one slab it sunk, exposing the raised edge of an adjoining slab. The client reported the matter and the defective slab was rectified the following day.


Our client received £2,500 in compensation for the injuries she incurred.
