Stefania, from Chelsea in London, is a successful, talented and ambitious self-emplyed architect who was injured on 7th August 2012 while visiting a project in Chelsea. She fell down an unguarded/unsigned hole, which had been covered with a black plastic sheet. Stefania sustained life-changing injuries, particularly to her left ankle.
Jennifer Buchanan and Jill Greenfield were instructed by Stefania to pursue her personal injury claim and worked closely with Orthopaedic Consultant, Charles Willis Owen to establish the best treatment options for Stefania.
Stefania had worked very hard to build up her business and it was inevitably affected as a result of her injuries Because she is self-employed, her loss of earnings was not straightforward, so it was important that this was looked at extremely carefully.
Stefania’s case has now settled for a substantial figure.
