How Hayward Baker Helped
One of our personal injury specialist lawyers Gary Lee took on this accident at work claim .
The defendant insurers admitted liability for the accident and so Gary’s next step was to provide evidence to prove that our client’s injuries were as a result of the material accident. It was Gary’s hard work and diligence that won the day and he achieved a favourable settlement for our client.
In addition to our clients compensation for her injuries he also recovered the following out of pocket expenses:
- Travelling expenses to and from medical appointments
- Care and assistance
- Cost of spectacles, eye test
- Future losses for spectacles
Verity negotiated a settlement figure of over £17,000.00 for our client inclusive of her out of pocket expenses
