Success story – pothole trip £15,300 compensation

Our client fractured his wrist after tripping in a pothole on a public pavement. The surface was uneven, and the pothole caused the accident.

The local housing association, which was responsible for maintaining the path, eventually admitted liability.

NV Legal obtained the required medical evidence and arranged for him to have updated x-rays and a further examination by a specialist wrist consultant.

He also required a further MRI scan and additional medical evidence before we were able to settle the claim.

Settlement was reached, after negotiation, for £15,300 within 22 months of instruction.

Our client, Grant Thompson, was delighted with the outcome. He said: “Thank you for all that you have done for me over the last two years, it means so much and I am very happy of the outcome. I can’t thank you enough for all the work that you have put in.

“I would fully recommend NV legal, from start to finish you have been so professional with all the details concerning my case. You took up my case when other solicitors wouldn’t, kept me fully informed of all aspects of my case, were very helpful and answered all my questions.

“I would fully recommend NV Legal to anybody who needs a solicitor, I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again, you were honest, trustworthy and professional.”
