Freeclaim Solicitors successfully secured accident compensation in the sum of £117,000 for a client who sustained injury as a result of a slip at work. Our client was working as a HGV driver when he slipped on debris on the flat bed of his own vehicle whilst unloading the contents. He sustained a rupture of the left quadriceps muscle and required surgery to repair the muscle. Our client was unable to return to work following his accident and as a result suffered depression and adjustment disorder. The Defendants offered a settlement figure of £30,000 and disputed our client’s psychological problems and the evidence for these. Freeclaim Solicitors used their legal expertise and argued against this, ultimately agreeing a more substantial settlement of £117,000.
