Claimant suffered injury to her right wrist as a result of walking from a store in a retail park towards the exit. She fell over a raised kerb due to defective lighting.
I represented my Client who suffered a fractured right wrist as a result of falling over a raised kerb under defective lighting at night after leaving a retail store and heading towards the exit of the retail park.
My Client was medically examined and diagnosed as having suffered a fracture to her right wrist with an exacerbation of pre-existing right thumb arthritis. The fracture fully resolved within twelve months of the date of the accident, with the exacerbation of the thumb arthritis returning to pre-accident levels within two years of the accident.
The Defendants maintained their fully denial of fault for the accident and refused to disclose documents to enable the Claimant to fully investigate liability, which resulted in our successfully applying to Court that they be ordered to disclose the documents. Following this, they maintained their denial of fault and I commenced County Court proceedings against the Defendant.
The matter was pursued through litigation and the Court listed this matter for trial. The Defendant’s Solicitors finally agreed settlement of the claim in the sum of £7,000.00 two months before trial.
