Faulty chair results in a fractured hip

Woman getting advice from solicitor

This case involved a client attending a family wedding. As she went to sit down on her seat at the reception, the seat collapsed beneath her and caused her to land awkwardly and fracture her hip.

Personal injury claim against providers of chair

The client came to Digby Brown's specialist team in defective product claims.

They intimated a personal injury claim against the providers of the chair on the basis that the chair was defective.

Liability was denied by insurer

Following a court action being raised by Digby Brown, the case settled for over £18,000.
