Tripping accident - Path is the Council's responsibility

Sep 17 2014


Murria Solicitors were instructed in a tripping accident. Murria Solicitors acted for a Client who was tripped on an uneven and raised path. As a result of the accident our Client suffered injuries to her face, nose and legs.

The Local Authority responsible for the defective pathway denied responsibility for our client’s accident however, the law in relation to pathways built in the 1960’s by the local council is clear. Highways constructed by councils within their own areas would be maintainable at public expense.

As a result of the denial of liability, Court proceedings were issued and upon submitting all evidence, the Solicitors for the council admitted liability. In September 2014, our client was awarded £3,500 compensation plus full payment of legal costs, without the need to attend a trial hearing.

This claim was handled by our Mr Subhash Mistry, a Solicitor who specialises in personal injury claims.
