Woman injured in street accident - Local Authority pays accident compensation

Our specialist personal injury compensation lawyers won several thousand pounds in accident compensation for our client's injury in a street accident which could have been avoided.

The Local Authority admitted liability. Through strong negotiation, and after advising our client to reject lower offers, we were successful in winning an appropriate and fair sum in compensation for our client.

Fall in street through disrepair of road surface

Our client had been walking along the road when her foot sank into a large pothole, causing her to stumble and fall awkwardly. She had to be taken to hospital where her ankle injury was treated. Although the worst of the injury did resolve itself within a few weeks, our client was left in some pain and discomfort for a couple of years.

Breach of Regulations

They admitted liability, in that they should have been aware of such a serious hazard. This street accident could have been avoided if they had operated an effective method of inspection and repair. This was a breach of their statutory duty to maintain the Highways under the Highways Act.
