Success Story – pothole injury compensation £8,000

Our client suffered injuries to her knee, hand, ankle, forearm and lower back in an unfortunate accident when she tripped in a pothole.

Following the accident, we obtained medical evidence from the relevant professionals and served it on the insurers.

The Council admitted liability and put forward an offer of £5,500, which was rejected.

We issued proceedings in court and five days before the trial was due to take place, a reasonable offer was received from the Defendant’s solicitor and we were able to settle the case for £8,000.

Had the third-party insurer engaged sensibly four months earlier, the costs and wasted court time could have been avoided.
