They claimed for WHAT?

Who hasn’t sat there reading a news headline and exclaimed they got HOW MUCH?! for WHAT?! and feeling little sympathy for people who have suffered injury from incidents such as these:-

  • Damages paid for falling over when in pub (and we don’t mean a la “Del Boy” from Only Fools and Horses!);
  • Damages paid for falling over at a concert;
  • Damages paid to employee who dropped a heavy object on their leg;
  • Damages paid for slipping on water;
  • Damages paid for spilling a hot drink on themselves at work; and
  • Damages paid for slicing own finger at work.

falling over in a pub

The thing is, once you get past the headlines invariably appearing in the “Daily Mail” the person involved has actually suffered injury causing significant pain and suffering as well as financial loss as a result of another person’s negligence.  We were happy to claim and win damages for all our clients in the above real life situations.

Until someone has been unfortunate enough to be injured as a result of someone else’s negligence it is easy to scoff at other people’s misfortune.  If you are injured as a result of some one’s negligence you have a legal right to claim and should not be put off from claiming because of the distorted view the media paints of this well established area of law.

We at JS Miller are proud to assist people who have been injured and help them recover the damages they are entitled to.

Call us on 0161 274 5588 to discuss your claim or email help@jsmillersolicitors.co.uk to see how we can help you.
