A client of BLB Solicitors who developed CRPS following an accident at work in 2013, has just settled their claim for £1 million. In their own words:
“After an accident at work in early 2013 I was diagnosed with CRPS, a chronic pain condition of which very little is known to the vast majority of those in health care.
“I started my claim with a large national firm as many others do. It became apparent quite quickly that based on their working practices, lack of communication and very limited knowledge of chronic pain that I needed to seek other representation.
“In late December 2013 I came across BLB on the internet and decided to give them a call. I spoke with Bruce Dyer and explained the situation. Bruce directed me to a section on the website of BLB where information about CRPS can be found. With no hard sale or feeling pushed I decided to have Bruce Dyer and BLB represent me.
“Bruce was very quickly able to secure an interim payment within a few weeks that my old representatives hadn’t in months. Bruce was excellent throughout the entire case and remains so after settlement. He knows a great deal about CRPS and the impact it has, and has some outstanding experts to call upon, many leaders in their fields.
“A claim for personal injury can seem daunting, a legal minefield in fact. That is why it is so important to have the right representation. Bruce Dyer left no stone unturned which can seem highly intrusive on the surface, but, had he not done so information I had not thought to disclose which aided my claim would of been left unspoken.
“Bruce will explain everything to you that you don’t understand in a manner you will. He has a calm demeanour and is softly spoken, a true people person. His empathy and understanding made my family and I feel that we matter.
“Bruce instructed Barrister Julian Benson who was outstanding from the get go. After three and a half years Bruce and Julian secured me £1,000,000.00 in compensation. Whilst that will not restore what is lost it will provide security for the future.”
