Where you have tripped on a road, highway or pavement there are guidelines as to what is usually considered to be legally 'dangerous'. Whilst these may be different to what one would normally consider to be dangerous, claims do have to conform to these rules. So please ensure, if you have had a trip and are thinking of making claim, to take photographs of the defect you tripped on, showing measurements of the dimensions of the defect. We will in all likelihood need to see these photographs to consider whether we think the defect you tripped on would be considered legally 'dangerous'. Also, taking details of witnesses can be very helpful.
