Our client, a 40-year old lady and her husband were assembling an Argos storage bed for their son, when the base of the bed sprung up, hitting our client in her face.

The force of the impact caused her to suffer the loss of two front teeth and a fracture to her nose. Our Client argued that the bed was defective, in that the pistons to lift the base of the bed were set at an incorrect level. Argos quickly admitted liability for his manufacturing fault.

We obtained interim payments to meet the cost of our Client’s ongoing dental treatment and to also help arrange treatment with leading dental and maxilla-facial experts. Fortunately, our client has made an excellent recovery, with her smile fully restored.

This claim was settled without the need to commence court proceedings.

S J Edney Solicitors obtained compensation of £55,000 for this client in 2017
