Areas of Law / Personal Injury

Just over two years ago my husband, who is 75, had a bad fall on the forecourt of our local supermarket and had to have an operation for a broken hip. The store is now saying sand was put on a fuel spillage before the accident, whereas my husband and a witness say this was only done after he fell. We have now paid for a barrister’s advice, but our solicitor says we don’t have much chance of compensation.

Obviously I don’t have all the details, but it’s rare for any case to be totally clear-cut, and where opposing facts are presented the judge will have to decide. The judge is likely to take the word of an independent witness before that of interested parties however. Wait to hear from the barrister, but bear in mind your claim must be filed within the three-year limit.
