Victim of Torrington accident wins compensation

A Barnstaple woman who suffered a fractured wrist and head injury when she caught her foot in a pavement pothole in Torrington, North Devon has won nearly £10,000 in compensation.

Karen Utley, who lives in West Yelland, near Barnstaple was getting out of a friend’s car in Mill Street, Torrington when she tripped and fell. She sustained a fracture to her wrist as well as head injuries.

She decided to pursue a personal injury claim and consulted Slee Blackwell Solicitors. With offices throughout Devon, including Barnstaple, and a national reputation in the field of injury law, we were the natural choice.

We dealt with the injury claim on a No Win – No Fee basis.

Commenting on the successful settlement of the Torrington accident claim the lawyer dealing with the case said:

“Photographs taken 3 days after the accident show that the hole was deep, quite old and was right by the kerb, just where someone would step when getting out of a car. Karen suffered a nasty right wrist fracture, which has left her with continuing pain and some restriction in movement, which will be permanent. The injury compensation we negotiated with the council’s insurers reflects those ongoing problems.”
