Adam's work accident claim settles for £27,000 (Belfast)
Adam was working as a neighbourhood officer for a housing organisation and he was tasked with attending an apartment complex following a complaint from a resident. After completing his investigation he began to leave the building via a flight of stairs. As he made his way down his foot caught on some loose flooring that had come away from a step. Adam fell forward and down the rest of the stairs. He sustained an injury to his wrist, a fractured ankle and a cracked rib.
As a result of the accident he attended hospital for treatment and required time off work to recover.
Adam contacted Paschal O'Hare Solicitors
Adam decided to submit a claim for compensation and began to look online for local legal representation. He came across Paschal O’Hare Solicitors and was particularly impressed with the large number of positive reviews we have. We took Adam on as a client and sent a letter of claim to his employer, who was responsible for the building. They admitted liability and indicated a willingness to settle the matter.
To determine the extent of the injuries we had Adam examined by a specialist consultant who provided a medical report. We also hired a consultant engineer to provide a report on the issue with loose floor covering. As a result of this evidence, we negotiated a settlement in the sum of £27,000 in compensation.
