Incident in the Strawberry Field

Our client was at work, walking in the field and carrying cages with strawberries, when her foot got stuck in the deep mud and she fell. She was on a designated pathway when the deep mud caused her to fall, injuring her ankle. She was taken to the A&E where it was established that she had sustained a fracture.

Legal Challenge and Witness Support

The Defendant initially denied knowledge of the accident insisting that it was never reported, but Snezhina Yankova, who was representing this client, secured favourable statements from several witnesses who confirmed that the accident did take place.

Successful Settlement for the Claimant

The farm accident claim settled successfully in the claimant’s favour and Snezhina secured a £10,500 settlement for her client. The financial award took into account the amount of time our client was unable to work.

Client’s Feedback

Our client commented: “Thank you for a job well done and for your professionalism in helping me through this difficult time”.
