Our client, Mr N, was badly injured when he fell over a hazard caused by a property owner’s failure to adequately maintain his property and so he brought a claim against his public liability insurance for damages. These are often known as trip and slip claims.
He instructed another local firm of solicitors who claimed to specialise in personal injury, but after three years of acting for him, and on the eve of the deadline for issuing court proceedings, they informed him that they did not believe his claim would be successful and so would be closing their file. Mr N contacted us and we reviewed his case before corresponding with the insurers in a way that gave them little choice but to settle.
It is only with true expertise in a field that you can have the confidence to take on, and win, public liability personal injury claims.
Within three months of being instructed, Mr N was in receipt of a payment of £18,000 in personal injury compensation and loss of earnings payments. He said, “I was very frustrated at the lack of progress with my claim and was shocked when my previous solicitor wanted to close it. I knew that I had a good claim and believed I should be compensated, but I did not have the right person in my corner. From the moment Michael at MJV & Co Solicitors took over the case I had full confidence in him. He came up with a plan on how to settle it and it worked. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his firm to anyone.”
Mr N added, “If you are not happy with the solicitor dealing with your trip and slip claim, instruct Michael. You won’t regret it.”
