Nick's case experience

Accident abroad claim: Nick’s client worked for a large company with a placement outside of Europe. He was walking on site when he tripped and fell due to the uneven road surface and poor lighting. The fall resulted in permanent damage and restriction to his shoulder. Whilst he did not lose any significant earnings as a result of the accident, Nick’s client was left disabled and at a significant disadvantage in the labour market. Nick secured £220,000 compensation for his client.

Accident at work claim: Nick’s client suffered a fractured elbow and required surgery after a defective gate fell onto him at work. He was left with permanent neuropathic pain restricting his ability to carry out his role as a call controller and was forced to accept a role with a reduced income. Nick secured a settlement of £400,000 for his client.


Nick’s former client said: “I would like to say a very big thank you to yourself for proceeding with this case for me. I have received the cheque this morning. Without your help I probably would not have continued with it as I thought it was going to be very difficult to claim. So thank you so much again Nick for acting on my behalf.”

Another of Nick’s former clients said: “My solicitor Nick Taylor managed my personal injury claim in a professional manner, keeping me informed as the months rolled by. He was kind and empathetic, especially when I wanted to give up. He took time to explain what stage the claim had reached and what would happen next. Nick made the process as easy as possible and I appreciated the friendly, concise and informative way that I was kept appraised of events. Thank you for your tireless patience and support. I would have no qualms in recommending you to my family and friends.”
