Ms B, a local client from Bury, contacted Aston Knight Solicitors when she sustained an injury after she tripped on a pothole on a crossing in Bury. Aston Knight Solicitors obtained photographs of the pothole with measurements and a claim was brought against Bury Council.

Liability was admitted by the Council and medical evidence was obtained. Ms B suffered a soft tissue injury to her knee. Bury Council noted Ms B had suffered from a previous knee injury and therefore did not accept this fall caused her the injury she complained of. However, we disagreed and following some negotiations reached a settlement of £3,300.

Managing Director and Solicitor Mr Ayoub Khan commented: “Accidents in public places like this one, can be very difficult to win. Here at Aston Knight Solicitors, we are proud of our success rate in these types of claims. Our solicitors don’t give up the case when faced with a denial of liability and work tirelessly on our client’s behalf to get a successful outcome. With the increased reports of potholes not just in Bury but throughout the country, we have seen an increase in these types of claims. If you have suffered an injury caused by the state of our highways, then please do get in touch with one of our team”.
