One of Hayward Baker Client's receives over £5,000 in compensation after tripping over a pothole

PotholeOur client was walking down a road in Boxmoor on her way to a family meal in a public House when she tripped and fell due to a large pothole on the pavement.

As a result of the fall our client suffered in jury and loss.

Our Client’s In juries:

Left Wrist fracture to radius bone, left ankle sprain , bruised right knee cap. Strained ligaments and muscles.

What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help:

We took on the case on a No Win No Fee basis and stated the claim to the defendant insurers via the online personal injury insurers claims portal.

The insurers acknowledged the claim on behalf of the defendant which was the local council and liability was admitted.

This meant that provided that a medical report confirms our client was injured as a result of the accident, the insurers have agreed to pay her compensation.The level of compensation will be calculated once one of our claims advisers has reviewed the medical report.

The medical expert chosen to examine our client and formulate the report was an Orthopaedic Consultant and his report confirmed our client’s injuries were as a result of the accident.

The medical report highlighted various out of pocket expenses as stated below:

  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Care and Assistance around the home of a domestic nature
  • Medical expenses such as painkillers, MRI Scan and Physiotherapy
  • Other expenses such as telephone calls and postage

The above items were added to our client Special Damages Schedule.

Once our client was happy with her medical report and out of pocket expenses claim she signed the authorities to release the medical report and to allow us to to settle her claim for compensation.


We settled our client’s claim for £5,244.11
