£2,250 compensation awarded to trip accident victim

Dated:

We recently helped a man following a tripping accident on a public footpath. He received £2,250 compensation for his injuries.

Our client was on his way to work when the accident happened. He was walking along a public footpath from a car park when he suddenly tripped because of dips caused by missing cobble stones in the path. He badly sprained his ankle.

Ankle Injury – Tripping Accident claimWe contacted the local council who where responsible for the public footpath and liability was quickly admitted as they had failed to keep the public footpath in a good state of repair. We promptly proceeded to obtain a medical report and evidence of the injury sustained by our client.

Emma Roberts, Personal Injury Litigation Executive at Simpson Millar commented: "The defendants made an initial offer of £2,000 which was not unreasonable but I managed to negotiate an increase for our client."
