Woman receives £6,500 settlement for tripping accident
Stephensons’ personal injury solicitors recently settled a case on behalf of a client who had tripped and sustained injuries whilst walking through her local town centre.
Our client was walking with her friend in the town centre, when she suddenly tripped and fell landing on the ground and banging her face on the floor. As she was on the floor she realised that she had fallen over a raised manhole that had caused the surrounding area to erode.
As a result of the accident, our client sustained a broken right ankle, a laceration to her forehead which consequently left scarring to her left eyebrow, bruising and swelling to her face, left arm and left hand. The injuries to the left hand and arm settled within 2-3 months. Regarding the fractured right ankle, she was required to wear a plaster cast for approximately 6 weeks, however she was left with symptoms such as aching, an inability to wear heeled shoes and also experienced difficulty walking upstairs.
After Stephensons proceeded with the case against the Council, the case was settled and she received £6,500 in compensation.
