Our client who is a retired elderly lady was walking along a pavement in Fareham when she trod on an uneven paving slab causing her to fall forwards and sustain injury.
Our Client’s Injuries:
Fractured humerus and shoulder joint.
How Hayward Baker helped:
We took on this claim on a no win no fee basis. Liability was not an issue so we concentrated on getting medical evidence together as we would need this to prove our client’s injuries and to be able to value the claim for compensation. We achieved this by obtaining a medical appointment with an Orthopaedic Surgeon who after examining our client would formulate a report upon her injuries.
As our client was elderly and incapacitated for some time due to her injuries we claimed for care and assistance around the home for things such as household chores, cleaning and dog walking. We also made a claim for future care as our client’s symptoms were permanent.
We settled the claim for just over £24,000
