If you’ve had a slip or a trip in a public place, your first feeling might be just be embarrassment which is completely natural. You might instinctively want to just forget about it, despite having suffered an injury.

We understand that a fall in public isn’t the sort of thing most people want to dwell on but we recognise that in many cases the fall might not actually be your fault.

We tend not to think of public roads and walkways as belonging to anyone and therefore it might seem like nobody is responsible for looking after you, but public roads and footpaths fall under the jurisdiction of local authorities who have a duty of care to provide for members of the public.

The Council has a duty to make sure that when you are walking along pavements or roads that you are reasonably safe.

If they fail to inspect and repair the pavements and roads and you ultimately trip or slip on defects on the pavement or roads then you can make an accident compensation claim.

We recovered £30,000.00 for our Client who slipped and fell in a car park sustaining back injuries.

Customer testimonials for our Personal Injury solicitors

“Thank you to Vijay and his team, throughout the whole journey you have been so supportive and helpful, I cannot thank you enough”

Mrs Martin

“I would like to say a very big thank you to Vijay. The service you provided was excellent and at all times I always felt confident that you would get the result we wanted. Your approach to myself and the claim was done with kindness and understanding. I never once felt like just a file number, and your friendliness made the whole process so much easier. I would also like to thank you for the outcome of the claim, because without all your hard work it would not have been possible. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that finds themselves in the unfortunate position where they need to make a claim.”

Paul Gafner

“I had a claim for compensation. The case was lengthy (five years) and complicated. The case was handled throughout by Vijay whom I found to be efficient, courteous, co-operative and very supportive. His favourite saying was ‘hide behind me, I will look after you’ and he did. I feel Vijay did an excellent job and I would recommend Wrigley Claydon’s services to anyone.”

Simon Johnson

“I am writing to thank Wrigley Claydon Solicitors for the skillful and professional way in which my mother’s accident claim was handled. The case was quite complex and there were many twists along the way but I always felt that Vijay was in full control. This was proved in the successful outcome which was well beyond our expectations. His communication was first class, always clear, friendly and left me with no doubts about where we were. I felt that I was kept fully informed at all stages of the claim. I would have no hesitation in using your Company again or recommending Vijay to others in need of help.”

Susan Monk

“Vijay was friendly and made me feel completely at ease. His service was second to none and he got the result needed. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing legal service or advice.”

Sylvia Royales

“Vijay was a tremendous help and provided an excellent service, I really appreciated the work he did for me.”

Michael Hennessy

“I have experienced Vijay Srivastava’s work first hand on many occasions. I have always been impressed with the zeal he has for his Client’s success and that he leaves no stone unturned in his diligence. I can say that he ‘turns himself inside out’ for his Clients. I would be most happy to advance Vijay’s name to any of my friends, family or indeed anyone who needed the services of an honest and accomplished Solicitor.”
