At the end of October the clocks go back, sunset occurs earlier in the day and unfortunately, the number of road traffic accidents rise. In 2019, pedestrian deaths rose from 33 in September and 36 in October to 54 in November and 57 in December....
Stephensons’ personal injury solicitors have recently settled a case on behalf of a man who fell as a result of a pothole at his place of work.
The man, working as a pilot, was making his way towards an aircraft hangar when he fell as a result of a pothole, twisting his right foot. He suffered from ligament damage to his right knee and was unable to drive, work or take part in his usual hobbies for 5 weeks.
The airport did not admit liability, however, made an offer of £6,000 which our client accepted.
Accidents at work are unfortunately very common and can result in serious injuries such as in this case. We have a team of personal injury specialists who are available to help people who have suffered from falls.
