We acted for a gentleman in his 80s who suffered a fractured hip and dislocation of his shoulder, when he fell from his bicycle whilst being chased by a dog in a park. His shoulder relocated itself, but he had to undergo total hip replacement surgery, from which he made excellent progress. The Defendant denied that they had failed to control their dog and alleged that our Client had simply lost his balance and fallen from his bike. Court proceedings were issued, following which we were able to agree an out of court settlement for our client.
S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £21,000 for this client during 2014
