Beware of limitation! Lucky Mr Jones

Manager interviewing a male applicant

Mr Jones had a very unfortunate fall at work, whereby as he was in the process of climbing up a ladder leaning against a tower when the ladder and tower moved causing him to fall backwards with the ladder.  He fell approximately 10 feet to the ground and sustained a blow to his head.

As a result of his injury Mr Jones suffered a permanent loss of smell and impaired taste. Mr Jones presented his claim to Harris Fowler Solicitors shortly before Limitation expired. Due to the fast action of Harris Fowler court proceedings were issued and an application was made to the court for an extension of time to serve the court papers which was duly granted.

Upon completion of medical evidence and calculation of damages owed Harris Fowler were able to successfully negotiate the maximum compensation award possible on the evidence,  £28,000.00.

Without the services of a solicitor Mr Jones would not have secured an award for compensation.  The limitation period in most cases is 3 years from the date of the accident or knowledge when such accident led to the injury caused. Therefore it is of the most importance that clients are aware of this and when faced with a similar dilemma to Mr Jones they instruct highly qualified professionals such a Harris Fowler Solicitors.

Mr Jones remarked, “Sheer perfection and care for your clients – Brilliant!”

In the event you or a member of your family has suffered an injury in the last 3 years or beyond that you contact Harris Fowler Solicitors as a matter of urgency. If we don’t know we can’t help.
