Woman sues Essex Council for pavement injury

A 48-year-old woman is claiming personal injury compensation from Essex County Council after falling on a damaged section of pavement.

The woman had just got off a bus in Loughton in September 2005 when she caught her foot on a lump of tarmac which was raised up close to the curb.

Speaking of her pavement injury, the woman said, "I'm in severe pain and I've had to go to 22 sessions of physiotherapy."

The fall on the tarmac left the woman with one fractured ankle and damage in the other, forcing her to take more than a month off work.

After investigating the section of broken road, the woman found that a council inspector had recommended that the road should be repaired in 2007, but nothing had been done.

The woman is now making a personal injury compensation claim against Essex County Council for the fall that she suffered.
