Mr C from Birmingham suffered injuries in an office accident; he came to Michael Lewin to make a compensation claim for the suffering he had endured.
Mr C was 56 when he was injured in a pothole accident. He caught and trapped his foot in a pothole at work.
Accidents where a foot becomes trapped can cause ligaments in the leg to be ruptured; this can cause pain for several weeks and can need an operation to resolve the problem. We have experienced staff who has many years of experience in dealing with pothole claims and although pothole accidents can sound comical the financial consequences can be very severe.
