Mr L injured his lower back after he was requested to lift a heavy three seater sofa at work without another person's assistance.
His employer, a national furniture retailer, admitted liability for the work accident.
Mr L brought his work accident claim to Scott Rees & Co where we arranged for Mr L to see a medical expert to determine the extent of damage suffered.
The medical expert's results came back showing Mr L's injury was expected to last and affect him for the next 2 years.
A compensation amount of around £27,000 was awarded to Mr L to account for his lost earnings, his pain and suffering and his potential loss of earnings for the next 2 years.
Mr L did leave us a video testimonial which we have uploaded for your viewing.
Miss A was having a meal in a restaurant when she bit into a piece of broken porcelain from a ramekin dish that was in her food.
Miss A sustained a small cut to her mouth, which subsequently led to her suffering from an infection and mouth ulcers.
After bringing her occupiers liability claim to Scott Rees & Co, we obtained Miss A's medical records which shows she had a long history of suffering mouth ulcers.
The Defendant initially tried to argue that her infection and mouth ulcers were the result of natural causes and her history with them.
However, we eventually managed to get a liability admission and agree on a £1,700 compensation package.
Miss A recorded a video testimonial to talk about how we dealt with her claim and how we made the process easy for her.
Mrs L was walking down a dimly lit pathway when she fell down an open, three foot deep trench.
The trench had been left open by a contractor who was performing work earlier on some water pipes situated under the ground.
The contractor did not left any warning signs around the defect, nor did they gate or fence it off.
As a result of her fall, Mrs L suffered a soft tissue injury to her lower back, hip, chest and upper left side of her arm.
We helped Mrs L sue the company responsible for their negligent work and received £4,200 for her personal injury compensation.
Miss F was riding her bike and overtaking some parked cars when suddenly the driver of one them opened the door.
Miss F was knocked off her bike and sustained injury to her neck, back, left knee, left eye, right ankle and fingers, as well as suffering psychological damage with riding her bike again.
She originally sought instruction from another firm of solicitors but later transferred her case to us after being left unsatisfied by their level of professional care.
Within 6 months after receiving the full transfer of her documents from her previous solicitors, we were able to reach a settlement of £3,500 for her bicycle accident claim.
Mrs J was staying at a hotel with a poorly placed towel radiator.
The towel radiator was situated too close to the toilet, which resulted in Mrs J burning her leg when she used it.
Mrs J brought her burn injury claim to Scott Rees & Co where we put together her case and backed it up with the required evidence.
The hotel admitted liability for the badly positioned towel radiator and a settlement of £1,000 was agreed within 6 months.
The hotel has since remodeled their bathroom to prevent further injuries from occurring in the future.
Mr N was staying at a hotel with his wife when they had their evening meal at the hotel's restaurant.
On conclusion of the meal, the waiter came to pour Mr N and his wife some tea and coffee.
The waiter had a pot of coffee in his left hand and a pot of tea in his right hand.
As the waiter began pouring coffee for Mr N's wife, the waiter accidentally poured tea over Mr N's back, causing him to suffer minor burn injuries.
With the help of Scott Rees & Co solicitors, we settled the occupiers liability claim for £1,500 with the hotel restaurant.
Miss S was walking through the restaurant kitchen when a chef carrying a pan of hot oil spilled some on her foot.
As a result Miss S suffered burn injuries and scarring to her foot.
Miss S approached us with her accident at work claim. Our job was to prove that the chef had acted against the health and safety regulations by moving hot oil across the kitchen.
We were able to help secure a settlement of over £1,600 for Miss S.
Miss S left us a glowing review in her video testimonial here.
Mr C was travelling on his motorcycle when he was rear-end shunted by a car.
The impact caused Mr C to be thrown off his motorbike and suffer injury to his neck, shoulders and knees.
To make matters worse, the driver responsible for the accident left the scene without checking if Mr C was alright or swapping contact details.
We assured Mr C that he was still entitled to compensation even when there was no Defendant because of the hit and run issue.
We were able to help Mr C claim £2,500 for his hit and run claim.
Mr H was a passenger travelling in a taxi.
The taxi driver lost control of their vehicle and drove over a roundabout before hitting a pavement with force.
This caused Mr H to be shunted in the back seat, suffering a whiplash neck injury that would take around five months to recover from.
We were able to help Mr H recover their general damages, treatment costs and travel expenses from the settlement.

With the help of Scott Rees & Co, we were able to agree a settlement of around £2,700 for her passenger accident claim.
