Our client sustained injury when she tripped and fell at her Dental Practice.
She tripped on a broken, raised paving stone, fracturing two fingers and permanently damaging her little finger, which will now no longer straighten.
Sophie Davies, a Legal Executive in Irwin Mitchell’s Personal Injury Team in Sheffield, represented the client. Liability was admitted but the defendants attempted to settle the claim for £1500 compensation, without proper medical evidence illustrating the injuries our client sustained. This offer was rejected twice and on receipt of medical evidence, the case was settled for £4500.
This story highlights how important it is for victims of personal injury to instruct a solicitor who can gather all the evidence to support their case, before a settlement is agreed.
