Our client was a resident in a rented caravan for the Christmas Break. We were advised that the shower cubicle door was broken and did not shut properly and that this had been reported to the sites reception staff on the day before our client’s accident. Our client had a shower and as she was exiting the shower she slipped and fell due to an excess of water that had escaped through the broken shower door and onto the floor in front of the shower cubicle. As a result of the accident our client has sustained injury, loss and damage.
Our Client’s Injuries:
Fractured left ankle and cut foot. Torn ligament in ankle and bruised legs.
How Hayward Baker helped:
Liability was admitted at the start of the claim therefore what we had to do was to prove the injuries were as a result of the accident and get our client treatment as soon as possible to help mitigate her losses. To achieve this we obtained medical reports upon our client’s injuries from an Orthopaedic Consultant, a Psychiatrist, a Physician and a Neurologist.
The main part of our client compensation was for medical treatment and we arranged a number of appointments with medical specialists such as pain management.
We also recovered a sum for out of pocket expenses (Special damages) and this was to cover travelling expenses to and from medical appointments along with a claim for care and assistance around the home.
We negotiated a settlement figure for our client of £50,000 to include damages and special damages.
