Injury Solicitor in North Tawton
Devon-born Matthew Walker was enjoying a family holiday in Wales when he slipped coming out of a shop and broke his ankle. After a gruelling night in Accident and Emergency, Mr Walker and his family had to abandon their holiday and returned home with Mr Walker on crutches and his leg in plaster. He had to take four weeks off of work and his leg was in plaster for a further eight weeks. It was a full year before he felt entirely right again.
When Mr Walker discovered that the shop entrance, which featured a ramp without guard rails, didn’t conform to health and safety standards he decided to make a claim, not just for compensation but to ensure that the shop made their entrance way safe for others.
Mr Walker wanted an injury solicitor in North Tawton, so he phoned Accident Advice Helpline who were very sympathetic and confirmed that yes, he was absolutely entitled to make a claim. They quickly put him into touch with an injury solicitor in North Tawton.
The solicitor took care of the rest and before long, Mr Walker received a compensation cheque for £3500. He and his family went on a holiday to Spain, where he played football on the beach with his children under somewhat sunnier skies! His children beat him as his ankle still wasn’t entirely mended by then. Or at least that’s what he said.
And yes, the shop had that ramp rebuilt, ensuring that there would be no more broken ankles, or worse.
