We achieved this award for a lovely client who has since referred several friends, family members and acquaintances to us, so thrilled was he with the service he recieved.
We were similarly thrilled with the lovely chocolates he sent in to thank us!
This was a difficult case as the client was walking in town when he stumbled on a sunken pavement. The difficulty was that a “rule of thumb” has developed in court where you must prove a trip hazard exceeds one inch to be actionable against the highway authority. In this case the “sink” was well in excess of this but there was no direct trip hazard, in other words there was nothing sticking up to that degree.
We successfully argued that the sink from buses driving over the pavement should have been picked up and repaired upon inspection and because it wasn’t then they were liable for our client’s painful injuries.
A great and difficult case to win.
