Incident

At the time of the incident our client, Mr Anthony Dix, was shopping at a local store in his home town of Newport when he tripped on a raised area of carpet. Mr Dix fell over and struck his elbow on a piece of wooden furniture.

Injuries

Mr Dix sustained soft tissue injuries, swelling and severe discomfort to his right elbow which lasted around 2 months. Our client also reports that following the incident, his domestic duties were restricted.

Outcome

The Defendant initially denied liability. However, Hampson Hughes Solicitors’ team of personal injury experts managed to secure a total of £1,250 compensation for the Claimant.

Following the successful outcome of his personal injury claim, Mr Dix said:

“I didn’t think I would get compensation as they [the third party] kept denying liability. Hampson Hughes Solicitors kept on [pursuing the case] and then the other side finally made an offer. Thanks.”
