Football Accident Case Study
Our client suffered a football injury. Our experts worked to help secure over £11,000 in compensation.
|Knee Laceration and Scarring
|Case settled in January 2022, £11,000 awarded
In November 2020, our client was playing in a football match on a local pitch. During the game, the client went to the ground to try and keep the ball in play on the halfway line, near the touchline. The client caught their knee on a drain that was hidden by grass and white lines on the football pitch itself, and as a result, had the top of their knee cap cut off by the drain.
The football pitch was council-owned, and as such, it was the council’s responsibility to ensure the pitch was fit for purpose and safe to play on. Therefore, our client made a claim against the local council for the injury.
As a result of the accident, our client suffered knee lacerations that required surgery and scaring.
Our client instructed Jefferies in November 2021 and was represented by Case handler Emma Hughes.
The claim was settled in January 2022 for £11,000.
Of their experience in claiming with Jefferies Solicitors. Our client said, “The process was simple, straightforward, and stress-free. Emma Hughes particularly took care of me from start to finish making sure I was never left in the dark. Credit where credit’s due! Many thanks”.
