Our client was at a shopping centre, spending the afternoon Christmas shopping. They had just come out of a store and were walking when they tripped over a metal plinth belonging to a temporary pop-up stall.
The client twisted their ankle and landed heavily. After the incident shopping centre staff arrived and erected barriers around the protruding plinth.
Due to negligence, our client suffered pain, loss, injury and damage. They suffered back, hip and ankle injuries plus soft tissue damage to their face. They were unable to adequately carry out personal activities such as shopping and domestic tasks for 12 months due to the injuries sustained.
Our client contacted Jefferies shortly after the accident and Hayley Bird took on the claim.
The claim was settled in February 2022 for £10,500. The settlement compensated the client for both the effects of the injury and other expenses incurred as a result. These included travel expenses to medical appointments, medication costs and costs for personal care and assistance such as shopping and domestic tasks.
