The claimant’s details have been changed but this is indeed a true case
Phil Mulryne acted on behalf of the Claimant to pursue a claim for personal injuries.
The Claimant was a school child who injured his right foot which was caught on a length of exposed wire/cable whilst playing on climbing apparatus at a local park.
When the claim was submitted to the Defendants, liability was admitted.
The Claimant suffered a nasty wound which healed within a couple of weeks but left a permanent scar.
The Claimant had some anxiety for a few months or so when visiting playgrounds.
Proposals to settle the claim were put forward by the Defendant’s representatives at £2,000.00. This offer was put forward directly to the Claimant’s mother prior to Ward & Rider being instructed.
The offer was rejected and an increased offer to the sum of £3,500.00 was negotiated.
As the Claimant is under 18, approval of the settlement had to be given by the court so the matter proceeded to a hearing whereupon the settlement figure was endorsed by a Judge, and the compensation award invested in the court funds account to be released when the Claimant reaches the age of 18.
