Broken Leg Football Claim – £40000 Settlement
Mr Cooper suffered a serious football injury as the result of a violent, ‘studs up’ challenge during a football match in Essex.
He had kicked the ball past the goalkeeper who then lunged in, kicking Mr Cooper’s right knee in an attempt to ‘take him out’.
Mr Cooper had to undergo metalwork surgery as he was left with a fractured tibia and knee ligament damage.
Due to the extreme force of the challenge, the stud marks are still visible on his leg in the form of scars and a doctor described the injuries as being more like the impact of a motorcycle injury!
Our client was unable to return to his work as a postman for several months and lost a substantial amount of earnings.
We helped him recover £40,000 in compensation.
