Mrs D was involved in a road traffic accident in which she sustained a neck injury. The neck injury required operative treatment, and she was away from work following an operation to her neck.

Mr B was using a drill at work when the drill bit snapped and speared our client in his eye. We managed to successfully secure a full return to work for our client despite his injuries and also recovered him £120,000 after much negotiations. The defendants also argued that our client’s damages should be deducted for allegedly contributing to his accident. We fought for Mr B so he secured 100% of the damages to which he was entitled. His award included an award for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, past loss of earnings until he could return to work, care and assistance provided by friend and family and the client’s disadvantage on the labour market due to his injury. No stone was left unturned for Mr B – we even recovered the costs of attending a driver’s rehabilitation course.
Mr H worked at the airport, unloading baggage from aircraft when his foot caught in loose netting causing him to fall from down to the ground and sustain an injury to his shoulder. The defendants again tried to reduce the client’s damages by 20% but we fought to secure Mr H a settlement on a full basis. Mr H returned to work following surgery on a part time basis and we secured his continued loss of earnings for life so he did not suffer financially through working part time. We secured a settlement for Mr H in the sum of £133,000.
Mr D was outside his flat when he fell down a manhole cover. The Council denied they were to blame for Mr D’s accident.

Miss H was dissatisfied with the way her previous solicitors were conducting her road traffic accident claim. She was being urged, against her will, to accept a 50/50 settlement because she had no witnesses to support her version of the accident. She came to us for a second opinion. We believed in her, took her claim on, issued Court proceedings and secured a 100% settlement for her. She recovered all her losses, damages for a whiplash injury, full costs, and her full ‘no claims bonus’ was preserved.
Master B was aged 17 when he had an accident at school – the premises had been changed – new windows had been fitted to a building, but they opened dangerously near to a play area where he was playing football. He ran into a corner of an open window frame, sustaining a nasty cut and scar to his forehead, knocking himself out in the process. His mum complained to the school; to the governors and to her L.E.A., looking only for an apology, and confirmation that the windows would be altered, so as to open safely. All her complaints fell on ‘deaf ears’ and she came to us for help. By the time Master B became Mr B (1 year – when he was 18!) we had obtained an admission of liability, the windows had been changed, and he was able to celebrate with a handsome 5 figure sum for damages for his pain and suffering.
