We acted for a man who was crossing the road in his home town when his foot struck the edge of a pothole. He tripped on the pothole and fell forwards, landing on his hands and then catching his face on the ground.
He sustained an injury to his tooth, a cut lip and a fracture in his thumb. He was required to have a cast on his hand for 6 weeks.
We bought a claim against the council responsible and as a result they admitted they were negligent in allowing the pothole to remain in the road.
We obtained £12,500 in compensation for our client’s injury. He was very happy with the outcome and thanked us for our assistance in his claim.
