Jenny suffered an accident in the street when she stepped upon a manhole cover. Little did she know that the manhole was defective, and her right leg fell right through.
Shocked, Jenny had to fight to stop her body from falling down the hole. In the process, she suffered nasty cuts and scrapes to her legs, knees and arms.
The worst injury, however, was a dislocated shoulder. When she fell, she tried to break her fall, but the angle at which she fell jarred her arm and popped it out of its socket.
Thankfully, a passerby saw the accident unfold and quickly came to her aid. She called an ambulance. This witness was also aware of the defective manhole. Had in fact reported it to the council some months prior. Yet nothing was done. She took photographs of the scene for Jenny, and also provided her contact information should Jenny wish to claim.
Jenny did go on to make a claim and received thousands of pounds in compensation. This covered the physical pain and suffering caused by her injuries, and also for the money she lost in having to take time off work to recover.

Injuries affect everything you do. Your work, your hobbies and how you choose to spend your free time.
Ben’s injury was caused by an accident at work. It stopped him being able to get out of bed and left him unable to go to work. It meant he didn’t know where the money for his bills was going to come from.
I was in agony. I had to take about two weeks off work. My Dad had to come and help me out of bed because I didn’t have the strength to be able to push myself up.
But above everything, Ben’s injury stopped him being able to do the thing he loves the most – bodyboarding. His injury took away his hobby and his peace of mind.
And in fact, his injury still holds him back to this day.
To us, that feels wrong.
And it felt wrong to Ben too – that’s why he got in contact with us to help him make it right.
Injuries can happen when you least expect them – just like it did for Larissa.
While out shopping with her son, Larissa suffered a head injury caused by a shop sign falling and hitting her on the head. Left lying on the floor with a nasty wound, Larissa’s accident was witnessed by her young son, who thankfully was not injured.
Her injury also meant she needed to go to her local hospital and resulted in a serious concussion that left her feeling dizzy and with regular headaches for a long time after her accident.
Larissa couldn’t drive for a month following her accident and felt anxious about leaving the house. This affected her family life and left her dependent on others to help.
Larissa contacted us to see if we could help.
They put me at ease straight away. It was like talking to another human, rather than talking to a robot. They were very, very helpful.
