Football Injury Claim London
Mr Collier instructed us in his football injury claim.
He was injured during a semi-professional football match in London.
Mr Collier had played a ball up field and several seconds later he was challenged high above his right ankle.
The opposing player had no chance of getting the ball.
The referee issued a red card and sent him off for Serious Foul Play (Law 12 – Fifa Laws Of The Game)
Mr Collier suffered compound fractures to his leg.
He needed major surgery and was away from work for several months.
We took on the claim against the offending player and agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
Team mates provided helpful witness statements.
The referee also gave a helpful statement.
But even so the insurers denied responsibility for the incident.
So we issued county court proceedings and began preparations for a trial.
The insurers then agreed to enter into negotiations.
Mr Collier then accepted an offer of £22,000 in compensation for his injury and loss of earnings.
