Compensation received for tripping accident Robin was returning to his office, when he tripped and fell on rubble and debris on the path, which was from a refurbishment project that was being undertaken in the property next door. He fell on his knee and shoulder and sustained a medial meniscus tear which required arthroscopic surgery and a shoulder injury to his rotator cuff, requiring physiotherapy and steroid injections. Liability was admitted by the Defendant's insurers. Medical evidence was obtained to quantify the claim and although Court proceedings were issued to protect our Robin's interests, the claim settled following negotiations without the need for our client to go to Court.
