Jane's story

spine
Jane was one of the most inspiring clients we have been lucky to represent. – Leigh Day spinal injury solicitors

Jane Sowerby suffered spinal injury when she left the flat of a friend in April 2003. The flat was a typical London flat, with stairs leading up to the entrance door to the ground floor. However, there was no handrail or other guard on one side of the steps, and when Jane tripped, there was nothing to prevent her falling onto steps leading to the basement. As a result she fractured her spine.

Jane was delighted with the settlement negotiated for her by Leigh Day.  She said:

"It is obvious to say that the accident has changed my life. However the litigation process itself has been stressful, particularly with the defendants decision to appeal the matter to the Court of Appeal. I feel as if I can now take the settlement and use it to plan for the future, and to get on with my life with some security."

Jane was one of the most inspiring clients we have been lucky to represent. She has refused to let her accident dampen her enthusiasm for life, and indeed since the accident has taken up scuba diving, skiing and skydiving. Money can never compensate for what has happened, but we hope that the excellent settlement will allow her to put the litigation behind her and plan for the future.
