14 February 2011

A woman was walking down the street and was involved in an accident in a public place when she tripped over.  Her foot landed in a hole next to a drain cover on the road.  She suffered a fracture to her left foot.

The defendant agreed 80% liability for the accident with our expert accident in a public place solicitors.  After 20% contributory negligence had been accounted for our client was awarded £4,000 in compensation.
