Bartletts personal injury solicitors in Wrexham were approached by an elderly gentleman who had suffered significant damage to his spinal cord from being tipped out of his wheel chair on a bus journey. The erratic driving of the bus driver was found to be at fault and the bus company immediately admitted liability. The bus operating company’s insurers were keen to settle as quickly as possible and offered the gentleman compensation for injuries of £1,000.
The gentleman was on the verge of accepting the offer when he saw a television advert for the National Accident Helpline and decided to take legal advice. After a simple phone call, the helpline put him in touch with Bartletts, the leading personal injury solicitors in nearby Wrexham.
Bartletts solicitors quickly explained that his claim had been vastly undervalued. The personal injury experts successfully negotiated with the bus company’s insurers to achieve a total compensation of £70,000 handling the case swiftly and sensitively, settling it in just eighteen months.
