NICK’S CASE EXPERIENCE
Accident at work claim: Nick represented a man who sustained a fractured elbow after a defective gate at his workplace fell onto him. The man required surgery and was left with permanent neuropathic pain that restricted his ability continue working as a call controller. As a result he was forced to take a new role on a reduced income. Nick secured £400,000 in compensation for his client.
Accident abroad claim: Nick’s client was working for a large company which had a placement outside Europe. Due to poor lighting and an uneven road surface, the client tripped and fell and suffered permanent damage and restricted movement to his shoulder. Although Nick’s client did not lose significant income because of the accident, he was left with a disability and was substantially disadvantaged in the labour market. Nick secured a compensation package of £220,000 for his client.
Nick’s former client said: “My solicitor Nick Taylor managed my personal injury claim in a professional manner, keeping me informed as the months rolled by. He was kind and empathetic, especially when I wanted to give up. He took time to explain what stage the claim had reached and what would happen next. Nick made the process as easy as possible and I appreciated the friendly, concise and informative way that I was kept appraised of events. Thank you for your tireless patience and support. I would have no qualms in recommending you to my family and friends.”
Another of Nick’s former clients said: “I would like to say a very big thank you to yourself for proceeding with this case for me. I have received the cheque this morning. Without your help I probably would not have continued with it as I thought it was going to be very difficult to claim. So thank you so much again Nick for acting on my behalf.”
