Mrs X contacted Farleys personal injury team about the possibility of making a claim after a slip on ice in a local hardware store.


Mrs X visited the store and proceeded to peruse the plant section outside when she slipped on ice causing her to sustain a nasty injury to her hip.

How Farleys Were Able to Help

Mrs X instructed personal injury solicitor, Laura Murphy of Farleys to act on her behalf in pursuing a claim against the hardware store.

Mrs X had already begun the complaints process with the defendants (the store) and therefore Farleys were able to hit the ground running.

Liability was denied by the defendant and they asserted that the area where Mrs X’s accident occurred was not as alleged. Laura sought the input of a barrister who was supportive of pursuing the case.

Laura instructed an Orthopaedic Surgeon to examine Mrs X and obtained a report thereafter.

Liability remained firmly in dispute and therefore court proceedings were issued before the claim finally settled in the sum of £9,000.

Laura commented,

We were delighted to achieve this result for Mrs X given the fact that liability was strongly disputed and court proceedings had been issued. We wish her all the best in her recovery.
