Broken bones lead to compensation claim

Broken bones lead to compensation claim

Broken bones and a head injury sustained during an accident in a public place have led to a man pursuing a compensation claim.

According to the Harwich & Manningtree Standard, Colin Corrigan suffered fractures to his leg and ribs, as well as a punctured lung and injuries to his head, when he fell a distance of 25 feet from a seawall path in East Mersea in August this year.

Mr Corrigan was on the walkway with his wife Julia, who blames Essex County Council and the Coopers Beach Caravan Site, which owned by Hoseasons - an organisation with 40,000 properties across Europe - and located nearby for the incident.

It took a team of coastguards and paramedics more than three hours to rescue the man and Ms Corrigan claims that more adequate safety measures - such as the installation of railings - need to be taken.

"No one is taking responsibility. We just want to make it safe. I wouldn't wish this on someone else," she commented.
