Our lawyers at Smith Jones Solicitors have been acting on behalf of a young man who was only 10 years old at the time of his accident. He lost the sight of his left eye after having a pencil thrown at him by another pupil in his classroom.
The client had previously sought advice from another firm of solicitors and in turn a Barrister who both advised that the claim had limited prospects of success and should have been abandoned at an early stage.
Smith Jones have now settled the claim and the client was awarded £250,000 compensation for his suffering. Our client was very pleased with the outcome.
