Client awarded £1,900 settlement for soft tissue injuries after falling over a pothole

Pauline Smith, associate and personal injury claims handler recently settled a case for a claimant who had sustained injury from falling down a pothole. 

The claimant was walking along Tamworth Lane after getting off the bus where his left foot suddenly fell into a pothole. He managed to stop himself from falling by putting his left hand out against a white van which was parked alongside the pavement. 

The claimant suffered soft tissue injuries to one side of his body. The expert opinion was that the claimant would recover fully from his symptoms one month after the accident. 

After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the property owners, the case was settled and the claimant received £1,900 compensation.
