High Street fall for Client due to poor maintenance works leaving raised paving slabs

Our client recovered compensation exceeding £4,700 for her personal injuries and financial losses after a fall on a pavement in Shirley, Southampton, Hampshire.

As our client was walking along the High Street, she tripped and fell on a raised paving slab. It was clear some restoration work had recently been carried out in the area with some old paving slabs removed and some new ones inserted. Unfortunately these new slabs had not been laid flat or had moved and they created a tripping hazard that caused our client to trip and fall. As a result of the accident, our client suffered broken metatarsal bones in her foot. Following an inspection of the area, the Local Authority accepted the works carried out at the location had not been of a satisfactory standard and our experienced specialist team of personal injury lawyers were able to reach a negotiated settlement of the claim with the need to issue Court proceedings.
