Compensation awarded to our client following negligent failings in works to Council car park

Author headshot image Posted by , Solicitor

Louise Huckstep, solicitor in our Personal Injury team in our Oxford office, successfully sued a Council and their contractors after alterations to the Council’s car park resulted in a large ‘depression’ in the tarmac surface causing our client to trip and sustain injury.

The fall not only spoilt our client’s holiday, but resulted in her requiring repeated re-dressing of a deep wound to her knee, and analgesia for aggravation of previous shoulder and knee symptoms.

Liability was denied, but following the issuing of proceedings, the contractors agreed to pay £6,250 to compensate our client.

Royds Withy King has a dedicated specialist team of lawyers who are committed to achieving the best possible results for individuals who sustained an injury through no fault of their own. Contact our Personal Injury team for a free initial assessment and to find out if you have a claim.
