JE represented an elderly woman who slipped in her hairdressers. She badly fractured her ankle and the long term prognosis was that the fracture would never fully heal. JE exhausted the possibility of private treatment for her, which could not be medically undertaken. However, JE managed to secure alterations to her bathroom to assist her in using this along with a scooter to allow her to have a degree of mobility. JE also managed to seek additional damages for care and assistance and recovered the cost of a holiday which had been ruined by the effects of the injury. JE managed to secure the client £26,000 in settlement.
