Carrs Solicitors win trial for client with serious head injury after pavement trip

Carrs Solicitors acted on behalf of a claimant who was left with a serious head injury after tripping over defective paving in Leicester city centre. The client suffered a subdural haematoma as a result of the fall.

The defendant denied liability, stating that repairs had been undertaken on the previous day to nearby defects in the paving. They also claimed that workmen on the pavement would have noticed the defect which caused the fall if it had been there while repairs were taking place – implying that the defect had appeared overnight.

At trial we were able to challenge the local council’s system for drawing defects to the attention of contractors, and we also challenged their measures for ensuring repairs had been carried out.
