We recently represented a Somerset woman who was injured while working for Somerset County Council.

The accident, which was caused by the negligence of SCC, resulted in our client suffering a rotator cuff injury to her shoulder.

We dealt with her case on a no win – no fee basis and submitted a detailed letter of claim to Somerset County Council.  We also arranged for a local orthopaedic surgeon to prepare a medical report on our client’s injuries.

Following investigations, Somerset County Council accepted there had been a breach of duty.  This meant we could then concentrate on determining the amount of compensation our client was entitled to receive.

Fortunately, our client recovered well from her shoulder surgery, but nevertheless she remained at risk of developing arthritis.

Our negotiations with the representatives of SCC were constructive and we were eventually able to reach an out-of-court settlement which involved a compensation payment of £30,000, plus legal costs.

If you have been injured in an accident then call our accident compensation team on Taunton 01823 354545 for a free assessment of your claim.
