Slip & Trip settlement of £10,32731 Aug 2021
Mr B, a sales executive, was injured when he tripped over a raised kerbstone on Upper Street in Islington. He suffered soft tissue injuries to his shoulder and back.
We were instructed to pursue a claim and were able to establish that the area was the responsibility of Transport for London. Transport for London admitted liability and we then obtained a medical report from a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon dealing with Mr. B’s injuries.
After a course of private treatment, Mr. B thankfully made a full recovery from his injuries. However, he had suffered financial losses as a result. Mr B was a high earner and worked in a very pressurised sales environment. Although he had not taken time off work he had lost commission and bonuses as a result of his injuries and the resulting effect on his performance.
We produced a detailed witness statement for Mr. B and obtained evidence from his employer to prove his loss. We were eventually able to secure a settlement of £10,327.17 for him. This included an award of over £6,500 for loss of commission.
Mr B commented:
“Osbornes, and the solicitor allocated to me Michael Cockings, dealt with my case with the highest levels of efficiency and professionalism from the outset. I received excellent legal advice throughout, and the matter was successfully concluded. I would highly recommend them”
