Under Settled Amputation Claim
Graham Barton consulted Mulderrigs about his under settled amputation claim.
He had been knocked off his motorcycle by a careless driver.
As a result of the accident he suffered a very serious leg injury.
The Negligent Solicitors
Graham’s insurance company appointed solicitors to deal with his personal injury claim.
Personal Injury solicitors have a legal duty to their clients to conduct matters with a reasonable standard of competence.
But the solicitors in Graham’s case did a terrible job.
They never arranged to meet Graham face to face.
They didn’t investigate the case properly and didn’t obtain any of the necessary medical evidence.
As a result of the solicitors’ negligence Graham received thousands of pounds less than he should have got.
So Mulderrigs took on the claim against the negligent solicitor and we agreed to act on “no win no fee” terms.
We obtained expert medical evidence about Graham’s injury and details of his financial losses.
The insurers for the negligent solicitors denied any negligence.
So we brought court proceedings on Graham’s behalf.
The insurers then agreed to negotiate as the case was approaching trial.
And Graham accepted an offer of £29220 in settlement of his claim.
