Our Andrew Millar, Partner at RP Crawford & Co Solicitors recently represented a client in relation to a personal injury claim which resulted in a successful settlement of £12,500.

Personal Injury Claim

Our client purchased a spade from a local retailer which we argued was a defective spade and that the retailer also provided a spade which was not of merchantable quality. Shortly after purchasing the spade was digging a hole in his back garden when the handle of the spade snapped causing our client to fall forward and sustain a laceration which resulted in a scar.


Having been instructed by the client from the outset of the case we were able to engage a consultant plastic surgeon of our preference to provide an initial report commenting on the scarring injury and in due course we obtained a further report confirming the extent of the scarring. The defendant did not accept fault in this case however after negotiations we were delighted to secure our client settlement in the sum of £12,500 and we were able to ensure that all of his medical expenses and legal costs were also covered by the defendant.
