An injury caused by broken pavement could be the subject of a claim with the services of Chichester no win no fee lawyers
The city of Chichester is found in the south-east of England and it was the site of an accident where a pensioner had a fall after her zimmer frame got stuck in a paving stone that was unstable. She has since warned other users of the pavement to be careful around the spot where she had the accident. The pensioner in question is Glenda Armstrong and she went for an x-ray at the South Tyneside District Hospital after the fall. She suffered bruising on her arm from the incident and her mobility has worsened after the fall.
Glenda has also spoken to the media about the accident and said that the incident happened when she was walking to the Chichester Metro station. She was getting ready to cross the road when her zimmer frame wheel got caught in the kerb that was sticking out. Two men who were passing by helped her up and she was able to get home safely albeit in pain. Glenda saw her GP who sent her to get an x-ray which showed that she had not broken any bones but she has noticeably felt less mobile since the accident.
Glenda Armstrong is from Highfield Gardens in South Shields and she has told her town MP, Emma Lewell-Buck, about her accident in an attempt to get the pavement fixed and warn other pedestrians about the spot. The MP has now made contact with the local authorities responsible for the maintenance of the relevant pavement to get it fixed.
The South Tyneside Council is the authority responsible and they have have contacted their insurers to get information from Glenda Armstrong for an investigation into the incident. This is not the first incident of this nature in South Tyneside with another elderly woman falling from a broken part of pavement, she suffered facial injuries from the accident.
