Five figure compensation payment to man who was injured when he tripped and fell on a sunken drain cover
Man receives large personal injury compensation payout when he is injured when tripping on a defective drain cover.
Accident Circumstances: Our client was walking through the pedestrian area in Sutton Ashfield when he tripped and fell on a defective drain cover.
Our Client’s Injuries: Broken and dislocated right ankle.
What did Hayward Baker Solicitors do to help: One of our personal injury specialists Alison Spriggs who is a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives took on the case on a no-win-no-fee basis and sent a letter of claim to the defendant, who admitted liability.
We obtained our client’s medical records from his GP and the hospital he attended for treatment. Once the records were received we arranged a medical appointment with an Orthopaedic Consultant who would examine our client and then formulate a report upon his injuries. The report was then used to prove his injuries and help us value his claim for compensation and associated losses.
We helped our client compile a schedule of special damages (Out of pocket expenses claim) which covered a loss of earnings, care and assistance for tasks he was unable to undertake himself around the home while he recovered from his injury,damaged items to include a repair to his iPhone and medical expenses.
Resolution: £15,533.24 was paid to our client including his compensation and out of pocket expenses.
