Family man receives accident compensation after street accident

A young father asked for our expert legal advice when he was injured in a fall in the street outside his home.

The local authority admitted liability and following strong negotiations, our specialist accident compensation lawyers won several thousand pounds in compensation for his injuries.

Council negligent through the actions of their employee

During the day, whilst our client was away from home, the local authority employees had installed a cable across the road and pavement. It was attached to a lamppost and to the road, but had been left loose across the path, posing a serious tripping hazard on a public footpath.

Our client was carrying his small son at the time and feeling himself fall, had to keep his son safe with one arm but put his other out to try to save himself. In doing so he injured his arm and shoulder, and during the following hours, the pain began to affect his lower back with pain radiating down his legs.

Fortunately his son was not injured and he himself did not suffer any broken bones. However, the numerous soft tissue injuries took many months to resolve, during which time he suffered considerable pain, reduced movement and disturbed sleep.
