Our client was a lawful visitor to the Defendants premises. Our client needed to fetch something from her car. As she was walking down some steps towards her car, she slipped and fell. The cause of the fall was due to black ice on the step.
As a result of the fall our client sustained a fractured arm.
How Hayward Baker helped: We took on this public liability claim on behalf of our client on a No Win No Fee basis. Unfortunately, the defendant insurers denied that the defendant was liable for the accident. We had to work hard to prove our client’s case especially as we issued proceedings and the matter was going to Court for a judge to decide who was at fault for the accident. We collated evidence in support of our clients claim and to prove our client’s injuries we obtained a medical experts report form an Orthopaedic Consultant. It was this report that we used to help value our client’s claim for compensation and any other losses.
We drafted a schedule of our client’s out of pocket expenses (special damages) to claim for the following:
- Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
- Care and Assistance
- Medical expenses
Conclusion: We obtained £5,000.00 for our client to include compensation for her injuries and out of pocket expenses.
