Mr L, a local client from Bury, suffered an injury to his foot when his foot became stuck in a gap between a cellar grate and the path causing him to go over on his ankle. The accident happened in a residential area of Bury.

Mr L contacted Aston Knight Solicitors, following a recommendation from another local client. We arranged for photographs to be taken of the defect.
A claim was brought against Bury Council. Liability was initially denied with the Council alleging the defect was the responsibility of the owner of the adjacent property and, in any event, they had a reasonable system of inspection and at the last inspection the defect was not identified by the Council’s inspector.

Notwithstanding the advices of a Barrister that the case did not have reasonable prospects of success, Aston Knight Solicitors believed the Council were responsible, responding to the denial of liability with arguments to the contrary. Following further correspondence Bury Council accepted our position and admitted liability for our client’s accident. Medical evidence was obtained in support of our client’s injuries and a settlement was reached in the sum of £3,000.

Solicitor, Emma Pearce, commented: “This is one of many examples we have where we have been successful for local clients who have made claims against Bury Council. It is nice to see local clients think of Aston Knight Solicitors to assist them in bringing their claims.

Over recent years the condition of the roads and pavements in Bury and nationwide have become increasingly deteriorated and a real concern for residents and the public in general. We are seeing an increase in accidents caused by potholes, uneven or raised paving stones, or areas of disrepair. If you have suffered an injury caused by the poor state of Bury’s roads and pavements, please get in touch”.
