Compensation for client injured by fall into utility company excavation in pavement

Accident in Public Place

Ms D. was injured when she fell into an unmarked and exposed excavation in the pavement.

What we did

When our solicitor took on the case it transpired that utility works were being undertaken in the area and barriers surrounding the excavation had not been erected.


A hole of this size (approximately 3 foot deep) should have been properly boarded up and precautions taken to prevent accidents like this. Temporary barriers are frequently subject to vandalism or are blown over in high winds.


Mrs D. received £1,750 in compensation for the injuries resulting from the accident.
