£8,000 for injured walker
Krysia Lewis from Chelmsford, Essex, got more than she bargained for when walking to her friend’s house a couple of years ago.
As Krysia was walking through a cut, she fell over a bollard that she had failed to notice because a leylandii tree covered the streetlight.
“When I fell I dislocated and broke my wrist,” explains Kryisa, “It really couldn’t have been worse as I’m a self-employed beauty therapist and in my profession my hands are my most important tools.”
Express Solicitors helped Krysia bring a claim against the owners of the property in which the tree was growing, as it was their responsibility for keeping the tree in check and ensuring it wasn’t a danger to the public.
Krysia continues: “The path wasn’t safe as the head of the lamppost was totally buried in the tree and I received £8,000 for my injuries within just nine months.”
“The solicitor I dealt with was very kind and made it so straight forward and stress-free. I was delighted with the sum I received and the speed with which my claim was brought to fruition; I would happily recommend Express Solicitors and use the firm again if I ever needed a personal injury lawyer.”
