Woman injured in fall may sue local council
A woman may sue her local council following an incident in which she suffered injuries to her legs.
According to a report in the Gloucestershire Echo, Sue Cross is considering seeking compensation as a result of her alleged fall, which occurred in the Market Parade area of Gloucester.
The 54-year-old grandmother says she tripped over a large "lump" in the road and hurt both her legs.
She also claims that she still suffers serious pain a result of the accident.
Ms Cross said: "I tend to look where I'm going when I cross the road. I don't expect to have to look at my feet the whole time.
"My knee still hurts a lot meaning I can't kneel down with my grandchildren."
Meanwhile, Nick Peters, a manager at Gloucestershire Highways - which seeks to improve the safety and condition of local roads - said that the organisation had not yet been contacted by Ms Cross.
