Pearson clients win £105,000 in personal injury compensation

  • Posted on

The family of a man who died as a result of a fall from a ladder has received compensation of £105,000. Pearson’s Personal Injury team acted for the family, who wish to remain unidentified, of a man who sustained a fall during the course of his work.

The family were initially unaware of their full entitlement until Pearson’s Personal Injury team advised them that they were able to claim compensation not only for his death and funeral expenses but also for the loss of dependency on his income and for the loss of the benefit of the DIY jobs that he did not only around the family home but at his daughter’s home.

£150,000 Accident At Work Compensation

After the man’s employers were prosecuted for health and safety offences, Pearson Hinchliffe negotiated settlement of the claim on behalf of his family with the company’s representatives, which resulted in a total compensation package worth £105,000.

A family member commented: “Pearson helped every step of the way. They kept us in touch with the case from telephone calls to appointments to discuss the case properly. They were helpful, friendly and kept us updated with everything and were patient when we were a bit confused as to what to do.”
