Our personal injury team acted on behalf of a young man who sustained injuries as a result of slipping on an untreated icy car park when leaving a public house late one evening.
He fractured his left distal tibia and fibula following the fall. This required internal fixation and he remained in hospital for one week post surgery. Our client later developed a complication and complained of chest pain on the right side and associated shortness of breath.
Investigations showed that he was suffering from a pulmonary embolus which required treatment on medication for six months. He did however make a full recovery within 12 months. A settlement of £9,300 was achieved against the public house.
