Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1709618.

As I was walking along West street I turned my ankle on an uneven pavement causing me to fall. Several people stopped to help me and said that an elderly lady had done the exact same thing a few days ago. I damaged my ankle and my knee.

  • After visiting the hospital this afternoon it had been confirmed that I have a double fracture to my left ankle. I now cannot continue my job as a dog walker so will not be earning anything for the next few weeks at least. Therefore I may be looking to recover that income from NCC. Please advise your process for compensation. Thank you.
