£50,000 settlement for a factory worker, whose claim was turned down by another firm of solicitors
Mrs K* was a factory worker. She parked her car in a car park adjacent to her factory. As she was walking towards the factory building, she tripped on a piece of a wooden board dropped on the pavement by a building company working nearby, and fell suffering an injury to her wrist.
Many years of experience in acting for the benefit of the victims of serious accidents
Consequently, Mrs K required surgery and after a long recovery was left with ongoing pain and restrictions in her injured wrist. She was initially represented by another firm of solicitors, who decided they could not assist Mrs K any further as she has moved back to Poland during the Covid-19 pandemic. Mrs K’s claim was going to expire within 6 months due to the end of the limitation period.
Mrs K has instructed Joanna Mackiewicz of Levenes Solicitors. She obtained the medical evidence required to finalise the claim, commenced court proceedings and obtained a high settlement for her client. Mrs K gave Joanna Mackiewicz a 5-star review.
This accident was caused by the careless actions of an employee of the building company. The company were insured and so it was possible to make a claim. It was important that Mrs K had their details otherwise the claim could not have succeeded.
Levenes have pursued a number of successful accidents claim that were rejected by other solicitors
It is not clear why her previous solicitors did not want to continue with the case when Mrs K moved to Poland. Since the pandemic, we have adapted the way we work to ensure that claims can proceed. For example, in some cases, medical assessments for the purpose of writing a medical report for the court can be done by video link.
On many occasions, Levenes have taken over cases from other solicitors when, for whatever reason, the previous solicitors were not able to proceed. We cannot always agree to take over a case in these circumstances, but we consider each case on its merits.
