Successful Serious Injury Claims
Teacher injured on family outing
Laura represented a school teacher who suffered a brain injury after stepping backwards and falling from an unseen drop during a game of ‘hide and seek’ with his children in the grounds of a stately home that opens to the public.
It was argued that the owners should have taken greater steps to warn visitors of the sudden drop. Laura’s client received compensation for his injuries as he found that despite being able to return to his job as a teacher, his brain injury meant that he was no longer able to function at such a high level and became very easily fatigued.
Self-employed businessman suffered head and spinal injuries
Laura acted for a self-employed internet businessman who suffered a head injury and spinal fractures when he was forced to use the fire escape of his workplace as vandals could be heard causing damage to the floors below.
The metal steps of the external fire escape had corroded and, as he descended the stairs, his foot went through one of the steps causing him to lose his balance and fall several storeys to the ground.
The owners of the property admitted liability for their failure to maintain the fire escape and the Claimant obtained compensation for his injuries.
