Irwin Mitchell has assisted a cyclist to claim compensation after a pothole caused him to fall off his bike.
Our client was cycling to work in London in November 2009. He reached a junction near Union Street and was caused to fall off his bike by a pothole that had formed in the road.
The fall caused our client to graze his hand and jaw and he sustained a 3 centimetre laceration to his chin. His physical injuries resolved within a week but it took a month for anxieties to resolve and his sleep to improve. He has been left with a small scar.
We brought a claim against the local council who admitted liability for our client's injuries and an out of court settlement of £1,400 was reached.
If you've been injured while on council property, our specialist personal injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. Visits our Claims Against The Council page for more information.
