Tripping Accident London – Occupiers Liability Claim – £170000 Settlement

Dr Eastbourne from London instructed Mulderrigs in his tripping accident claim.

He was injured when he tripped and fell in a dark airport car park when returning home from holiday

Dr Eastbourne had to get out of the car to collect his car park ticket but it was very dark and he fell over a large kerb.

He suffered a very serious injury to his shoulder and had to undergo surgery.

As a result of his injury Dr Eastbourne also had to take early retirement from his medical practice.

The car park operators had a clear duty under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957 to make sure the car park was safe.

So Mulderrigs agreed to take on Dr Eastbourne’s case against the car park operators, and we agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.

The insurers for the car park operators accepted liability for the accident.

We obtained expert medical evidence about  our client’s injury. We also obtained accountancy evidence about his loss of  earnings.

The insurers then arranged to meet with us and agreed to pay £170,000 in settlement of the claim.
