Compensation For Broken Leg – Dangerous Challenge
Mr Richardson suffered a broken leg during a cup final in Southampton between semi-professional teams.
He was the victim of a late, high and dangerous challenge.
The referee sent the other player off for Serious Foul Play (FIFA Laws Of The Game – Law 12)
Mr Richardson contacted Mulderrigs and we agreed to take on his case.
We agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
Paul Mulderrig met with all the witnesses in order get detailed witness statements.
All the witnesses said that this had been a reckless and dangerous challenge.
But the insurance company for the offending player denied responsibility.
The insurance company tried to suggest that the incident was ‘just one of those things’.
We didn’t agree and we brought court proceedings for our client.
Mr Richardson accepted an offer of more than £30,000 in compensation. for his injury.
