We had yet another successful week here in the Personal Injury Team at Taylor & Emmet. I have settled a variety of cases for clients who have been injured in Road Traffic Accidents, Slips on the Highway and Accidents in Supermarkets.
The most memorable case was for an elderly lady who fell whilst out shopping in a large well-known retail outlet and sustained head and facial injuries. However, her psychological injuries were more serious. Following the accident, she was frightened to go out alone and relied heavily on her family. We managed to secure damages for her in the sum of £20,000.00.
I have also obtained £4,000.00 for a lady who sustained a neck injury whilst at work when a heavy object fell from a height and struck her neck. Liability was initially denied but after a lot of hard work we managed to obtain an admission of liability and a successful outcome. We were also able to arrange physiotherapy which greatly assisted with her recovery.
I wish everyone a lovely accident-free
