Slip and Trip Injuries in Glasgow Cost Council £400,000

Over 750 claims for slip and trip injuries have been made to Glasgow City Council over the passed two years, resulting in just under £400,000 being paid out to compensate for the accidents. The figures, obtained by the Evening Times under the Freedom of Information Act, show that a majority of those claims have been settled, with approximately 250 still being dealt with.

The claims follow falls caused by pavement and road potholes in the city. In some cases those trips and falls have resulted in serious injuries, including severe bone fractures that have required corrective surgery. The newspaper notes that the largest payment of £14,729 was for an injury caused by a crater in a pavement. Other injuries also include slips on ice, trips over exposed cables and falls caused by inadequate street lighting.

The Council has recently invested in a patching programme in order to repair potholes in the city, which it hopes will reduce the number of public liability claims.
