Mobility scooter pothole accident causes arm injury to disabled person

Personal Injury Claim


What happened?

This arm injury claim arose from an accident in which the wheel of a mobility scooter got caught in a pothole in the road.

Our client was a disabled man. As the footpath he normally used was blocked, he was forced to drive his mobility scooter along the road.

When the wheel got caught in the pothole, he fell and sustained a nasty arm injury. Knowing that he would have to make his injury claim against the Highway Authority, he asked Dominic Goward & Co. to pursue his claim for him.

The Highway Authority initially claimed that all potholes were repaired promptly. We took the trouble to visit the site – and discovered that the pothole was still there!

Our client received £3,000.00 in a negotiated settlement.
