Pedestrian’s pothole injury results in £30,000 settlement


A woman who broke her arm tripping on a pothole has received £30,000 after contacting Sintons’ team of personal injury specialists.

Ms A fell outside her workplace as she was walking to her car, injuring her shoulder, neck and arm.

A fracture to her right radius required surgery, with a metal plate and pins being inserted, and she also sustained carpal tunnel syndrome – a condition which causes numbness and pain in the hand and fingers.

David Knipe, senior associate at Sintons, said: “We negotiated on Ms A’s behalf to secure a settlement for her which reflects not only the seriousness of the injuries but the ongoing physical effects.”

Securing the settlement required repeated negotiation with the defendant’s insurer, all of which was handled on Ms A’s behalf by Sintons.

Ms A commented: From the initial phone call to subsequent case progression with David Knipe, I have found the claims process very well handled with a good rapport and honest advice. Thank you!”

David Knipe added: “This is what we’re here for – to make the stressful time after an accident as straightforward as possible and to make sure people receive appropriate compensation.

“I’m pleased that we were able to handle this negotiation on behalf of Ms A and to make sure she got the settlement she needed.”
