Mrs D from Sunderland was a pensioner when she was injured in an accident in a public place. She was 77 years old and she had been out shopping when she tripped on defective mat in a shop. She fell badly and suffered extensive injuries due to the mat being defective.
Our client was very upset that a small shopping trip could cause her to be so badly injured. She was very angry that the mat was obviously defective and that the cost to replace the mat was minimal; yet the shop had not been concerned enough about their customers to make the small change which was needed to ensure their safety.
Oakwood’s fees are taken from the other side and you receive the full 100% of the compensation settlement you are awarded. I have suffered a slip trip of fall incident and as a result I have injuries; can the expert staff at Oakwood who deal with accidents every day help me with my compensation claim?
