Poor Mrs R was seriously injured at the age of 71 after she suffered a serious fall in a public place; Oakwood’s experts helped Mrs R claim compensation for a slip trip or fall injury in Leeds.
Mrs R suffered an accident in a public place due to the defective equipment that was in place on the pavement; due to the fact that the accident was not her fault Mrs R was successfully able to make a claim for compensation. Mrs R tripped over a drainage cover that was protruding from the path; the roots of a large tree had grown under the pavement lifting the tarmac and into the drainage cover. The roots of the tree had caused the drainage cover to lift up and presented itself as a serious hazard to Mrs R.
Having an accident at any age is not nice but when accidents happened to the elderly statistically the elderly take a much longer period of time to recover and they also sustain more serious injuries. If a younger fit and health person were to fall in the same accident they would be at a much lesser risk of suffering a fracture than someone who was a lot older.
