If you fall due to an uneven surface such as a pothole on the pavement or road you should be able to claim for compensation from the person or group responsible for maintaining the area.
Local Authorities have a duty to ensure that public highways, pavements and roads are maintained to a reasonable standard and do not present a hazard to pedestrians and cyclists.
Our client tripped in a pothole resulting in a fractured wrist and injured hand. Liability was admitted by the Council and the case settled for £8,230 in nine months.
Our client said: “I received a lot more compensation for my injury than I expected, and Nick Davis and his team were efficient and courteous throughout. A new pavement is being laid outside the RAF Museum. This is down to NV Legal and I’d be happy to turn to them in future if necessary.” PD
