£3,200 in compensation for dangerous manhole accident

Our client, a builder, was walking back to the car following a birthday party at a Play Centre on a business park.  The vehicle was parked in another area of the business park and just before getting to the front passenger door his right foot went into an uncovered manhole.  He sustained soft tissue injuries to his right ankle meaning he was off work for two weeks.

He was expected to make a full recovery within 9 months of the incident.  Damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity: £3,200.00.
