Pauline Smith, associate and personal injury claims handler recently settled a case for a claimant who sustained injury due to driving over a pothole.
The claimant was a passenger in the front of the vehicle driving along Pennington Lane in Newton Le Willows, Merseyside. The claimant’s husband was driving along the road when they suddenly heard a loud bang. There was an oval shaped pothole which was approximately six and a half inches deep and 13 inches in length. The pothole was in the road coming out from the kerb on the left hand side which they had driven over.
Immediately after the accident, the claimant suffered with spasms in her back and pain in her left shoulder. The expert opinion was that the claimant would recover completely from her injuries six months post accident.
After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the property owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £2,140 compensation.
