NYF recover £170,000 for accident victim 

Changes to "no win, no fee" cases in England and Wales announced by Justice Secretary

Case C - Previous Accident at Work

Mrs X had an accident at work in January 2006 and came to see us in March 2009, having just been told by the firm recommended by her Union that there were insufficient prospects of success to merit pursuing her claim further.  She wanted a second opinion.

Fortunately, the previous Solicitors had issued a basic Claim Form, thus preventing the claim from lapsing at 3 years post accident.  This left two months to obtain medical evidence, draft full pleadings and serve the Summons.

We believed the claim had prospects of success and our nominated barrister agreed. We secured a medical appointment and a report very shortly thereafter. The pleadings were drafted and served in May 2009, 4 days before the deadline.

In March 2010, we agreed settlement of the claim at £75,000.
