Success story – finger amputation £10,000 compensation

Losing part of a finger or limb can be a life-changing event causing distress not only in physical terms but with the financial implications it brings.

Our client instructed us two years’ ago in February 2018 after undergoing a partial amputation to one of his fingers after an accident at work.

His employer denied liability throughout the case so proceedings were issued in court and a trial date was set for 24th January 2020.

On 14th January 2020 we received an offer of £5,000 from his employer. We advised our client to reject the offer and successfully negotiated a settlement of £10,000 which represented almost 100% of his claim, three days before the trial was due to commence.

Our client, Les Fellows, said: “What an amazing service, which I cannot fault in any way. There was great communication throughout, and my calls were always returned promptly.  

The case was resolved much faster than I anticipated, and the compensation was paid into my account extremely fast. I would use NV Legal again and I highly recommend them. I cannot thank them enough for all the help and advice they have provided along the way.”
