Louise Scott, specialist personal injury solicitor at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office has secured a four-figure sum in compensation for a woman injured after falling over a pothole.
Our client, who is partially sighted, was crossing a road in Wokingham when she suddenly tripped and fell due to a large pothole in the road. As a result of the fall she suffered from a deep cut to her face which required five stitches. She also broke her glasses during the fall.
A complaint was made to Wokingham Borough Council about her accident and she was offered £250 by their insurers.
This sum of money did not even cover the cost of replacement glasses. She therefore contacted Irwin Mitchell, where they took over her case. Through the hard work of specialist personal injury solicitor, Louise Scott, £2500 was secured in compensation for both the injuries sustained and for replacement glasses. This case shows just how important it is to get advice from a specialist solicitor to make sure you get all the compensation you may be entitled to.
