Serious life changing injuries solicitors
Levenes solicitors have secured a 7-figure settlement for a Claimant who was struck by a tree. The Claimant suffered multiple injuries including a head injury, psychological injuries and multiple fractures.
The tree in question was in a park near to where the Claimant was working. He took a break from work and was standing near to the tree when it fell on him.
The Claimant’s last memory before the accident was of going to work that morning and his next memory was of waking up in hospital about 4 weeks later. He spent nearly 3 months in hospital recovering from his injuries followed by a very lengthy period of treatment and rehabilitation at home. Sadly, he was not ever able to return to work.
Our specialist personal injury lawyers ensured that the Claimant:
- received the treatment that he needed, privately and paid for by the insurers of the other party.
- received the interim payment to cover debts, urgent bills and the costs of ongoing treatment and expenses including physiotherapy and psychological therapy as well as other practical help and assistance.
We investigated cause of the accident that led to life changing injuries
The basis of the claim against the owner of the park was that they owed a duty to persons entering the park to ensure that the park was reasonably safe for anyone using the park.
Trees should be inspected regularly and signs of any disease which might weaken the strength of the tree could mean that the tree should be chopped down, or branches removed.
In his case, the owners of the park did not dispute liability.
The final settlement of the claim has meant that the Claimant will have final security and be able to continue to pay for treatment.
