A man seeking to make a personal injury compensation claim from his local council after his wife died after slipping on an icy path has been given renewed hope because a new witness has come forward.
The 66-year-old man is seeking damages from Angus Council, claiming council workmen failed to grit the pavement, on which his wife slipped, until after her accident.
The witness who has come forward recently has agreed to state how icy the path was in an attempt by the claimant to prove that the path had not been gritted prior to the accident involving his wife.
As a result of a bang to the head sustained during the accident the woman fell into a coma and later died. The claimant is seeking significant damages.
A spokesperson from the council, which has launched an investigation into the accident, which occurred on 4 February stated, “I can confirm the council’s winter roads maintenance policy was adhered to.” It denies there was any gritting shortages in the area.
