Veitch Penny LLP continue to be a Leading Firm in South West for Personal Injury* legal work. It is a position they have maintained for the past 7 years and is highlighted by their recent run of successful and unusual cases.
Veitch Penny understand how an accident can result in a life changing personal injury, but nature of the accident can be just as surprising as the injuries themselves. In particular, two recent Veitch Penny cases highlight this. One involved a woman who recovered £20,000 compensation after her horse was startled by a vehicle and a man recently received £13,000 after being attacked by a cow whilst lawfully walking along a public footpath.
There have also been several complex road traffic accidents. One was recently settled at £225,000 gross. Another involves a road traffic accident over ten years ago, where the claimant regretfully has gone on to develop a number of complications. The claim is being pursued in the High Court in London and is proceeding to Trial in the summer this year with an estimated value in excess of £4 million.
These examples are in addition to more common accidents, such as slips and trips, defective products, sports injuries, accidents at work and even stress at work – all of which Veitch Penny has experts on hand to advise. However the law has restrictions, for example if your accident was over three years ago, your right to claim compensation may have expired. Therefore, if you have had a personal injury and would like to find out if you can claim compensation, please ring Exeter 278381 to speak with a professional in more detail.
Veitch Penny Solicitors also specialises in wills, probate, conveyancing, and tax and employment advice for members of the general public, as well as actively working with local businesses and employers.
