£67500 Football Injury Compensation Claim
He was injured by a late and dangerous tackle which caused severe damage to his knee.
An opposing player came in hard, late and high with his studs showing.
Colin was hit just below his right knee and fell to the ground in severe pain.
The referee immediately sent the offending player off for an offence of Serious Foul Play.
Colin was taken to hospital and scans revealed serious damage to his knee ligaments.
Mulderrigs agreed to take on the case and we acted on “no win no fee” terms.
Paul Mulderrig travelled to Norfolk one Sunday afternoon to meet Colin and all the witnesses.
Detailed witness statements were then prepared.
Insurers for the offending player quickly admitted liability once they saw the evidence.
Colin’s injuries required several painful operations in order to heal.
But we were able to obtain payments so that the surgery could be carried out by a top football surgeon.
Medical experts prepared detailed reports after the surgery had been carried out.
The insurers then agreed to meet with us for some negotiations.
Colin accepted an offer of £67,500 of his claim.
