  1. Hi Elderly relative slipped on food produce on supermarket floor. Very bad fall. Immediately other customers came to help and they called over a store assistant to assist. This assistant then put up one of the yellow "danger slippery surface" signs. Relative had the presence of mind to use telephone to photograph what slipped on and the injury. After a while relative managed to get up/ drive home and then go to the doctor. Its a rural quite old-fashioned GP and they told relative to come back if injury gets worse (ie they were very busy and kind of couldn't deal with
  2. My partner is a carer. She has been sent to work for a lady who wasn't equipped with the correct device to keep her upright. She fell on my partner and my partner suffered a back injury leading to incontinence, pain and time off work. We took the case with xxx LLP, who wrote a letter to the employer and got a response, offering 4000 pounds as final settlement. xxx advised us to reject that offer, saying, over the phone, that we can always fall back on the 4000, but they believe we can get much more. Since then, my partner has been to Royal Berkshire Hospital, where the doctor said
  3. Hello My friend made a personal injury claim after a car accident at the beginning of last year. The 3rd party & insurance company accepted 100% liability. She made a claim for personal injury due to neck pain/whiplash through Irwin Mitchell. In July 2018, an approximate settlement was made to the value of £3000 odd. My friend received £2700 and the rest was taken in fees by IM. On Saturday she received a letter from IM with a copy of court documents headed 'EUI Ltd v ********' - the papers state that they are not disputing liability but they are disputing the amo
  4. I know someone who has been trying to claim compensation for a injury that occured in July 2015. The solicitors and company are taking so long to complete the claim. The result of the injury is bad enough requiring daily medication and walking issues, which no one really understands apart from you has had it before. Major distress in making appointments and contacting the solicitor has happen over the past 3 years can you be compensated for it either through making a complaint against your solicitor or other bodies?
  5. I had an accident at a VERY slow speed (about 5mph) in my local petrol station. I was reversing into a petrol pump place, and a black taxi drove forward into me. No damage to either vehicle, but the cab driver is claiming personal injury. This smells to me, and I think he's a fraudster. my insurance co say it's my fault - I would argue it's 50/50 as he should have seen my reversing lights and stopped moving forward. I exchanged numbers with the driver he only told me it wasn't his cab, but he was a friend of the owner of it. He gave me his name, but i didn't get ID fr
  6. Got stopped by 4 traffic police cars (that were on a roundabout) they checked insurance and driving license which was all good ! Then started looking around the car and said 3 tyres were rubbing as the car is lowered but not excessive (can send pictures on request) They told me they didn't know if it was legal or not so they took pictures to send away to be examined. they also threatened to take my car away from me but in the end they let me drive away. also the accident happened on 27th of june and I received the letter on 12 of july. does it matter that they sent the let
  7. Dear All, I’m looking for some advice please. Some time ago I had a road traffic accident. When cycling a car cut me off. I didn’t have a chance to break and hit the car, went through my handle bars and hit the ground. The driver drove off from the accident scene but the registration plates were known to the Police because one of the witnesses took photo of that car. I had many injuries and was taken to hospital. After sometime Police sent me a letter and informed me that ..."the driver of the other vehicle registration number XXXXXXX was unable to be traced"...
  8. Hi, My 9yo son was injured on holiday and my travel insurer wants to use a solicitor for the personal injury claim that happens to be part of a group which also collects debt and I have had some dealings with. Can anybody tell me, if this solicitor secures compensation for my son's injury, if the company can then retain it against my debts? Many thanks in advance! rune

  10. In May 2015 my friend's neighbour fitted a new steel railings at the front of her house. The railings were welded up by her father, so owner of property has vicarious liability. The railings form the boundary between her property and the pavement and there was no barrier sheilding the public from the flash of the welding arc or the metal fragments from the grinder used to tidy up the welds. well, you guessed it, my eyes were caught by the welding flash and suffered retinal burns in both eyes and pitting to both eyes from the metal fragments .Very painful. Attended A&E, got
  11. Hi, Last year in May I badly hurt my ankle. It was massively swollen and bruised (I can upload a picture if required). I had damaged my right ligaments in the past and had gone to the hospital and been told just to rest it for a few days. With this in mind, I did not go to hospital for 4 days assuming it was just ligament damage. However, after 4 days the pain was much greater than previous + was much more swollen and bruised. I decided I would go to hospital. Note, I was able to limp on it, but not put much weight at all on it. I went to Accident
  12. Hello All, I have an annual membership with British Military Fitness which was taken via Salary deduction through my company via third party provider GYMFLEX. I trained with BMF for 2 months but had an injury on 1st of March in my left ligament and have not been able to train since. I wrote to my company HR as advised by GYMFLEX , along with recommendation from my physio for 3 month no boot camps that BMF provides since its not a GYM but boot camp setup only in outdoor parks, and the response sent back is as follows. 'Thanks for your patience whilst we looked into thi
  13. Good morning, A friend of mine has a personal injury case against a bus company after driver took wrong route and hit a bollard whilst reversing to get back on route. - Bus company have admitted liability. The solicitor (well legal executive) acting for my friend requested a rheumatologist assess my friend because she suffers from a condition called hypermobile ehlers-danlos syndrome (hEDS) which causes constant debilitating pain and can cause small injuries or trauma to last for ages Anyway, this "expert" appeared not to know too much about her condition and has referred to out
  14. Hi All I had a trip/slip over 4 years ago with the offending council admitting liability immediately. The case dragged on due to the fact that my legal team changed three or four times and a lot of time was wasted. Eventually a competent solicitor was appointed and an agreement was made to settle the claim (we were due in court on the 2nd June) on the 24th March 2017. A time frame was given of 4-6 weeks but usually much sooner than that. It is now the 18th May and I have not received my money, I have called and emailed my solicitor every day this week and have had no response.
  15. I've never done this before so please bear with me if I provide too little, or too much, information. In December my Parent's hot water cylinder sprung a leak, they had home care with British Gas so called them out. An engineer came that night to drain the tank and another engineer came the next day to do the repair. The work they completed was done, to our limited knowledge, correctly. However, the second engineer failed to store the loft ladder away properly - he failed to insert the locking pin to prevent the ladders from sliding apart. When my Father op
  16. As a self-litigant after almost seven years of ongoing PI claim for PSTD which was initially for 40k. My barrister took over my case 2years ago and elevated my claim to 90k. We had two days hearing. I prepared the bundle and delivered personally to his office a week before the date. I asked for his skeleton argument, he replied, that is my own side, I will deal with it. Hearing date the defendant barrister handed his skeleton argument to my barrister my barrister said he didn’t know he had to do one. He borrowed my Ipad and held the court for 1.5 hrs pretext of negotia
  17. Hi A friend told me about these forums and in desperation thought I would turn to here to see if I can be advised what's best. I work alone with my boss, there is only the 2 of us. Early 2016 I was asked to push a broken down car. Next day when I got up I could hardly move with pain and have been signed off since then. I have since been diagnosed with a prolapsed disc and severe sciatica which is absolute agony so say the least. I can barely do anything and am facing surgery to try and help it. I have a personal claim going on and my boss insurer has admitt
  18. Hey folks, need some advice. Hubby had a motorcycle accident last November. Was hospitalised and had surgery. 5 months off work with only SSP. We got through that. We had a witness and the police prosecuted the driver for driving without due care and attention. That went to court in June last year. Hubby had 12m review with surgeon yesterday and has to have further surgery in 3 weeks, meaning more time off work. Our solicitor is telling us that the other parties insures have not responded to their push for admission of liability. Court proceedings were al
  19. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice please. I was off on long term sick from work four years ago. I was asked to come into work for a sickness case conference and while I was at the meeting a traumatic event occurred which resulted in serious mental health issues and me recently being diagnosed with PTSD. I wanted to check if I would be able to put a claim in for Industrial Injury Benefit as I was off sick at the time. Also should my employers have logged this officially anywhere Thanks
  20. I broke my ankle at work in 2004, Due to medical negligence was forced to walk on said ankle for 5 years whilst still broken, so then needed multiple operations to address this, which never accomplished anything and will be on painkillers for the rest of my life and am unable to work due to this. Question 1) Can I still claim for this as it has been over 12 years. Question 2) if I was stopping in the isle of wight at a hotel for work, and I sustained the injury after work hours, but was only on the isle of wight to work, can I still claim iib for the injury? Thank you
  21. Hi not sure if its possible to get advice on the following, but have used this website for debt issues over the years and advice has been invaluable, so hoping we can get some more advice re an injury claim. My hubby has popped and torn the ligaments and bicep in his right arm, this happened when he was at work (new job) he had to lift a very heavy trolley full of solid wheel rims over a lip to get them into the spray booth for painting. When it happened he was in agony of course and when he told the boss he was struggling to get the trolleys over and maybe installing some sort of
  22. Hi all, hope everyone had great Christmas and hopefully a nice start to the new year. So the situation is as follows: Parents went shopping to a major supermarket. Mum was paying, dad just arrived to the store, tapped mother on shoulder to let her know he is still in store shopping. Dad turns around to walk back into the store and falls/ trips over a basket. Genuinely fell over. I complained and complained to top of the tree people of the supermarket. Trying to deal with it myself rather than using a 'no win no fee' company. Recently got a letter from the Public Liability i
  23. Hi all I need some general advice, or just someone to help with throwing some thoughts and ideas around. Trying to cut a long story short, i work as a mobile engineer for a firm travelling and repairing all over the UK. Back in October i was seriously injured in a freak accident (not at work i should point out!) and was hospitalised for weeks with several operations on my legs carried out. I have been signed off sick ever since then. My wounds are now healed over and scars are healing up slowly thankfully. But i still struggle to kneel down, need a handrail to use stairs and chance
  24. Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) This is my disability and is widely ignored. Why? I have no idea. I have a short video now uploaded to the well known site here >> Credit to Brain Injury forum for the video. A big thank-you, as this short video shows what can affect us and how misunderstood we are. Please enjoy and try to understand we are normal but have trouble being understood. This made me smile today, this made me sad today . This made me cry today as well!!! This is me in a nutshell, but... I take the time to help others more able bodied than myself, please help us t
  25. Is it possible to bring a personal injury claim in a whistleblowing case? My health has deteriorated due to the treatment i received following whistleblowing and the subsequent stresses of my ongoing case. Would claim be through the courts and would it be a lengthy process following ET case? Many thanks!
