Success Story – Pothole injury £5,000 compensation

Our client sustained injuries following an unfortunate accident when she tripped in a pothole.

We were able to secure an admission of liability and achieved an excellent settlement of £5,000 which is at the very top end of our settlement bracket.

The case was dealt with efficiently and compensation was secured within a very short timescale. The case only took eight months to settle.

Our client was extremely satisfied with the process and forwarded a glowing testimonial. She said: “I have been looked after by NV Legal since my accident last October. Nick has done an amazing job in getting me a good settlement agreed. He is professional and always responded very promptly whenever I needed anything. If I ever need any help in the future, I will definitely contact NV Legal again.”
