Wakefield local council pavement and road potholes resulting in injury claims

Compensation awarded for pothole trip leading to brain injury

Posted in: Head and Brain Injuries Pothole Injuries Public Place Accidents 

An Australian charity worker has been awarded “substantial damages” after he tripped in a pothole in South London and sustained a serious brain injury, reports the BBC.

The incident occurred in 2007, when Kyle Bullock tripped in a three-inch deep pothole in Haringey. He was unable to break his fall because of the steep gradient of the road, and he also claims the road was badly lit.

He required brain surgery for injuries sustained in his fall, and has been left with epilepsy. He now has daily care needs and returned home to Australia after his accident.

According to the BBC, Haringey Council has apologised for the incident, and has now introduced a “comprehensive maintenance programme” for its roads.
