Whilst it is always very rewarding to obtain a high settlement for a client, the reward is greater when that client has been turned away by another firm first.  This was the situation Mr K found himself in before he came to Aston Knight Solicitors.

Mr K suffered serious complications as a result of an significant medical condition not being tested for a year earlier, despite him attending hospital a year earlier with symptoms common for that condition.  The result of his condition being missed was that he ended up deteriorating substantially including ending up in a coma.  Although he recovered from his coma he was left with breathlessness issues due to lung damage as well as kidney damage.

Following being turned away by a local firm, he sought a second opinion from Aston Knight.  Solicitor James Winterbottom reviewed the case and advised that there was a case and agreed to work on a no-win-no-fee basis.

First an admission of liability was secured and then specialist medical evidence to evidence the nature of Mr K’s ongoing injuries.  A settlement meeting was set up and following negotiations a favourable settlement of £130,000 was reached, which Mr K was delighted to accept.

Mr K was delighted with the result, awarding full marks in our client satisfaction questionnaire and commenting:

“They were very professional in all their handling of the complete case”

Solicitor James Winterbottom commented: “Cases like this highlight the importance of seeking a second, or even third, opinion if you feel you have a case despite receiving negative advice from another firm.  Many firms these days are delegating new case assessment to junior and/or non-specialist solicitors, who fail to see how cases can be won.  Always ensure you seek out a specialist firm with a proven success record in cases like yours.”
