Blackwater Law has recently secured a settlement of £3.2million for a client that suffered life-changing spinal injuries.

Dominic Graham, personal injury solicitor at Blackwater Law, represented Mr Irving in a making claim for spinal injuries following a serious accident.  Mr Irving left his apartment and descended down a flight of metal stairs. These were wet and Mr Irving slipped and fell to the bottom of the stairwell, landing on his back.

Mr Irving struggled on with work for a week but then his symptoms of numbness and strange sensations in hands, legs and feet worsened, rendering unable to work anymore. Three weeks after his accident Mr Irving was lifting a garage door when he collapsed. He was found and lay there for approximately an hour before being taken to hospital.

Mr Irving approached Blackwater Law for advice on whether he could potentially claim compensation. Blackwater Law agreed to represent in making a spinal injury claim Mr Irving on a no win, no fee basis.  After several years and much hard work on the part of Dominic Graham and his supporting colleagues at Blackwater Law, Mr Irving’s case was successfully settled without having to go to a Court trial for £3.2million.

Commenting on the successful conclusion of the case, Mr Irving said:

“Blackwater Law have provided faultless legal advice and guidance, as well as compassion. Their support has been incredible. I am very grateful.”

Mr Graham commented:

“We are very pleased with the settlement that was achieved for Mr Irving. This compensation will provide financial security to Mr Irving and ensure he receives the professional, long-term care he needs to support him.”
