€15,000 for woman who fell on Torrevieja street


A TORREVIEJA resident it to be compensated with €15,000 for serious injuries she suffered after a fall in a public street.

The accident happened when the elderly woman was walking down Calle Ramon Gallud in the city when her walking stick got caught in a sewer manhole cover causing her injury as she fell.

The town hall initially refused to recognise the claim of the neighbour who then took it to court claiming €25,000 for the damages and malpractice of the municipal services.

The court ruled in her favour but lowered the compensation she was to be paid to €15,000.
