Unfortunately, through no fault of your own, you can sustain an injury at the most unlikely of moments. Where it can be proven that you suffered an injury as the result of a third party’s negligent actions you may be eligible to claim compensation. Here at Farleys Solicitors our specialist Personal Injury department has over 20 years of experience acting on behalf of clients in a broad range of claims, below is an example of a recent case:
Blackburn Personal Injury Claim – Ms R Awarded £2,000
Ms R of Blackburn was involved in an accident whilst attending a pantomime at King George’s Hall, Blackburn.
During the performance, the pantomime dame joked about how he was not supposed to be throwing sweets into the audience. He then commenced to throw hard boiled sweets into the lower level audience and used a bat to hit the sweets further into the balcony. One of the sweets hit client directly in the mouth causing her personal injury.
As a result of the incident Ms R suffered a cut to her lip and damage to her lower teeth. Ms R was forced to under go treatment to her teeth to correct the damage sustained by the injury.
Ms R consulted the personal injury team at Farleys Solicitors.
How Farleys Were Able To Help
Farleys’ personal injury specialists were able to help Ms R pursue a claim following the accident. Our experienced solicitors supported Ms R through the course of her claim, advising her not to settle until the theatre had admitted full liability for the incident.
Despite the theatre defending their position, our compensation claims team were able to prove their negligent actions had led directly to Ms R sustaining the injury to her mouth, thus omitting their duty of care.
Liability was admitted some 10 months following receipt of the letter of claim and was settled outside of the courts with Ms R receiving damages in the sum of £2,000.
