Damages awarded in broken foot injury claim

Curzon Green secured substantial damages for their client following a final ‘Stage 3’ hearing in a personal injury claim. The Claimant had suffered a fractured metatarsal following a tripping accident at a private members club. The club’s insurers admitted liability at an early stage, however there was some distance between the parties in relation to the amount of compensation. Our solicitors, valuing the claim significantly higher than the best offer made by the insurer, took the case to Court for a ruling on quantum. The judge agreed with our valuation of the claim and made a damages award almost double the Defendant’s best offer. The award was also in excess of a tactical offer made by our solicitors earlier in the proceedings, which meant that the Claimant was also awarded an additional uplift on damages, interest and costs.
