The claimant’s details have been changed but this is indeed a true case
Phil Mulryne acted for Mrs B, the Claimant, following injuries sustained in an accident.
The Claimant slipped on a wet floor at the Defendant’s premises.
Upon presentation of the claim to the Defendants liability was accepted by the insurers.
The Claimant sustained an injury to her foot which was subsequently diagnosed as a fractured metatarsal. The Claimant’s injuries steadily improved with a full recovery within seven months of the accident.
During the period following the accident the Claimant had to rely on her husband taking over household cleaning duties, shopping and dog walking. This continued for around six weeks following the accident. The Claimant also incurred travelling expenses and car parking costs attending physiotherapy treatment.
Medical evidence was obtained to support the Claimant’s claim and an offer put forward in the sum of £6,000 for personal injury damages together with the costs of gratuitous care provided by the Claimant’s husband and travel costs.
The claim for care and travel costs were agreed but the value of the personal injury claim was disputed. An offer of £5,000 was put forward by the Defendant’s representatives and this offer was accepted.
