Irwin Mitchell’s specialised personal injury team has helped a 65 year old claim compensation after they tripped while walking along the pavement.
Our client was walking through an area in London when they suddenly tripped over a broken paving stone and landed on both their hands and face.
As a result of the accident our client suffered an injury to their nose and was suffering pain in both wrists, knees and all over their hands. Our client later went to hospital to be examined. Fortunately our client suffered no fractures but was diagnosed with a soft tissue injury to the nose, ribs and wrists.
The following day our client suffered pain in their ribs and bruising to their chest. Our client continued to suffer pain in both wrists and ribs until they eventually fully recovered after 3 months.
Our client decided to contact Irwin Mitchell’s specialised personal injury team and one of experienced solicitors, Katy Bailey, was able to deal with their claim. After some negotiations Katy was able to secure our client £2,100 in compensation in an out of court settlement.
If you've been injured due to a slip, trip or fall, our personal injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Slips, Trips and Falls Claims page for more information.
