In September 2009, our client was about to cross a road in Sheffield. As he stepped off the pavement, his foot dropped into an uncovered drain. Our client injured his right thumb and suffered injuries to his right leg.
When our client was see at a local hospital, he was given a supportive bandage and seen in the fracture clinic where the decision was made to apply a plaster cast.
Sheffield City Council admitted liability for leaving the drain uncovered and Irwin Mitchell solicitors helped the man to a settlement of £2,437.
Thankfully, although his injuries interfered with performing household chores for some time, our client’s leg healed with only a minor scar which isn’t visible from a distance.
If you've been injured due to a slip, trip or fall, our personal injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Slips, Trips and Falls Claims page for more information.
