£3,750 compensation for public liability personal injury claim
Our client tripped over in 2010 and sustained an injury to her ankle
and needed our assistance in making a claim for compensation.
Our client was walking home after collecting her daughter from primary school when she tripped over uneven and broken paving
. She suffered from ligament and soft tissue damage
and also a hair line fracture to her right ankle
.Liability for the client's accident was accepted
by the local authority's claim handlers following an initial letter of claim.
We managed to secure a settlement that reflected our client's injuries
from the medical evidence we obtained. We were also able to recover the cost of takeaways and a maid for the housework due to the fact the client could not manage to cook or clean due to her injuries.
The defendant initially offered £3,200 compensation however we were able to negotiate this up to £3,750
which was subsequently awarded to our client.
