A woman who suffered an amputation following a pothole accident received over £530,000 in accident compensation thanks to Freeclaim Personal Injury Solicitors. The accident happened when the woman was using a right of way over the Defendant’s land and she stepped into a pothole. She sustained an injury to her left ankle. Unfortunately, the injuries our client sustained in the trip resulted in her having to undergo several operations. These operations were unsuccessful and the ankle deteriorated to the extent that our client had to undergo an amputation. An initial settlement offer was put forward of £15,000. Freeclaim Solicitors strongly advised our client to reject this on the basis that her ankle injury at that stage had not yet stabilised. The later settlement figure of over £530,000 shows the staggering difference in these two figures and the importance of using injury lawyers who are specialist in this area.
