When a shop sign fell on a young man, leaving him permanently scarred, Bartletts personal injury solicitors in Wrexham helped him win compensation for personal injury.
The young man, who was in his 20s, was walking across a car park to his car, when a swinging shop advertising sign fell off its hinges and landed on him. The sign was of considerable weight, and as it fell from height it hit the man’s head with a great deal of force. The man fell to the pavement, his head was bleeding profusely and he was in a lot of pain.
The young man went to the accident and emergency department of his local hospital, where the cut to his head was examined and stitched. He was left with a scar on his forehead near to the hairline. He was unable to return to work for a few days due to concussion and swelling to his head and was prescribed some strong painkilling medication. He also needed a course of physiotherapy to alleviate some neck pain which also resulted from the accident.
When the young man came to see one of Bartletts specialist personal injury solicitors, he had a permanent scar at the site where the sign had landed on his head. Our experienced lawyer contacted the shop’s insurance company on his behalf and got to work on establishing his claim for personal injury compensation.
Bartletts successfully secured a settlement for the young man, as compensation for his personal injury, physiotherapy, medical costs and compensation for his loss of earnings.
