The defendant employer alleged that our client actually injured himself whilst at the Gym the day before the date of accident. The defendant through their legal representatives made it clear they would strenuously defend the claim.
The client attended for a free consultation, where we went through in detail the facts of his case, gave advice on the strengths and risks in his claim and the steps to be taken.
We gathered medical evidence on behalf of our client to prove the injuries he sustained and to obtain expert opinion on how those injuries were caused. In addition we took detailed statements from witnesses who could give evidence of the accident.
With the defendant indicating they would strenuously defend the case and not prepared to make a pre proceedings offer, we drafted, issued and served a High court Writ on the defendant.
Following service of proceedings, we entered in to negotiations with the defendant, which culminated with a joint consultation. Following vigorous discussions and offer and counter offer, the defendant made an offer of settlement that was acceptable.
Despite a vigorous defence being raised by the defendant, following our representations and the evidence we put forward on behalf of our client, they agreed to enter into negotiations. Leading to an acceptable offer being made to include our client’s costs, which our client was very happy to accept.
