We helped our client Liz receive a £7,500 settlement after she slipped on an icy step resulting in serious injury
Liz was leaving her son’s house in the early evening in late November, when she slipped on an ice covered front step. The window cleaner had washed the windows of the property a short time before Liz’s fall, leaving water on the ground which froze over in the cold conditions.
Liz suffered serious injuries including a fractured vertebra, soft tissues injuries and a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung).
How we helped Liz
We made a claim directly to the window cleaner which was passed to the window cleaner’s insurers to deal with. Following an investigation the insurers admitted liability.
Due to the nature of Liz’s injuries, we had to recover her full hospital and GP records, and then instruct an examination with a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. Liz had also been absent from work after the accident and sustained a loss of earnings, so we sought information from her employer to ensure we recovered the correct amount for her.
After the medical report was received, it was sent with all other supporting documentation to the insurers, and settlement was achieved shortly after.
I would highly recommend Lindsays to anyone, I was treated with the utmost respect and everyone was so helpful regarding the case, and it was quickly resolved, definitely the best around, thank you very much.
