Victoria's case experience
Crush injuries following an accident at work: An adult male suffered serious injuries to both ankles when they were crushed by a cherry picker. There were three defendants, all of which had gone into liquidation. As well as serious physical injury the claimant also suffered significant psychological injury. His employment had to be terminated and his home was no longer suitable for his needs. With Victoria’s help and support the claimant recovered 100% compensation at a joint settlement meeting to include a change of accommodation, the provision of care, future loss of earnings and treatment in the sum of £500,000.00.
Adult male brain injury following a fall at work: An adult male suffered a moderate traumatic brain injury when he slipped on ice at work. Claimant continued to suffer with serious cognitive impairments such as memory loss, reduction in concentration and attention and irritability as well as anxiety and depression. His employment was terminated though he gained full access to his works pension. Victoria secured him a settlement sum of £100,000.
Adult male brain injury following a road traffic accident: The adult male was crossing the road with his wife when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle. The claimant suffered a significant head injury, which required surgery, a soft tissue injury to his shoulder, as well as minor cuts and bruises. He was fortunately able to make a good recovery. The defendant maintained a denial of liability throughout the claim but Victoria was still able to secure him £50,000 in settlement.
