Dianne (Injury at work)

Direct Injuries helped Dianne from Walthamstow, who sustained a serious head injury in an accident at work in 2005. Dianne severed a nerve in her forehead. Consequently she suffered severe migraine headaches on a frequent basis and often had no choice but to stay in bed for days on end, reducing her attendance at work.

Her employers admitted responsibility for the accident but were not prepared to negotiate settlement of her claim. Her employers made her an offer of £9,000 in full and final settlement of her claim. Acting under a No Win No Fee agreement Direct Injuries helped Dianne take her case to trial. In mid 2006 Dianne was awarded compensation of about £72,000.

Direct Injuries helped Dianne under a No Win No Fee agreement. Moreover, our solicitors ensured Dianne retained 100% of the compensation awarded, regaining legal costs from the party at fault.
