    What makes the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful personal injury claim? The answer to that is probably more straight forward than you realise. For example, let’s take a look at what makes the difference between a successful injury claim for a broken wrist and a not so successful injury claim for a broken wrist.

    This successful injury claim for a broken wrist case study is about a young man, Mr B who works in a large retail fashion outlet. Mr B was asked to go with a colleague to collect some stock from the store room which was down a very steep flight of stairs which were cluttered with boxes and coat hangers. There was no handrail on the stairs and the lighting in the area had been broken for some time. The owner of the shop had been informed about the safety issues but had not done anything about it. Mr B fell down the stairs and hurt his wrist. His colleague saw her fall and helped him.

    Mr B was taken straight to the local Accident and Emergency Department where he received medical attention including an X-ray.  After the X-ray a broken wrist was diagnosed. He spent six weeks in plaster during which time he could not work. He was able to show this using his wage slips from before and after the accident. He contacted a well-established law firm called Accident Advice Helpline and spoke to the Injury Lawyer in Winchcombe who handled his claim for him. He provided all the necessary evidence about his accident, his injury and his loss of wages to his personal injury lawyer. He was awarded a fair level of compensation.

    Mr S worked in a factory making components for cars. He had been provided with footwear but had chosen not to wear them. The floor area within the factory was of non-slip construction and was in a well-maintained and clean condition. The lighting in the factory was good and there was no clutter or debris on the floor. His line manager had spotted that Mr S was not wearing appropriate footwear and had sent him back to the men’s locker rooms to change into his non-slip shoes.

    Instead, he just hung around outside the door.  When he got back to his work station he claimed that he had fallen and had allegedly injured his wrist. Nobody had seen him fall. He did not attend a doctor for the injury and did not have any diagnostic tests to confirm the injury. He claimed that he had to pay out extra childcare costs because he could not look after his children while his girlfriend was at work but it transpired that he did not in fact have any children. He did not contact a law firm like Accident Advice Helpline to assess his case and wrote to his employer demanding several thousands of pounds of compensation. Needless to say, his claim for compensation was rejected.
