Work place accident leads to over £800,000 settlement.

We acted for a male in his early forties who was involved in a very serious accident on a building site and as a result, he sustained a partial amputation of his left forefoot. Liability was denied in full. Legal proceedings were issued and medical evidence was obtained which indicated that the Claimant required an operation to amputate his foot through the ankle to allow a suitable prosthetic limb to be worn. Two joint settlement meetings took place and the case was eventually settled at the second settlement meeting for £837,500 on a full liability basis; £237,500 more than that offered at the previous meeting.
