Mr Forrester Received £1,600 Compensation for Burns

Mr Forrester was enjoying a camping trip with his family when he was unexpectedly and seriously injured.

He had been using the outdoor gas heater when it suddenly exploded into flames. It resulted in him being left with second-degree burns to his hands, which means that the first and second layers of his skin were damaged by the flames.

After the accident, Mr Forrester was left unable to live his normal life for many months. His burns meant he couldn’t pick up his little girl or play football with his older sons. This left him struggling to play the same role in his children’s lives as he had done.

He was also unable to take part in boxing, one of his favourite hobbies.

Hoping to find some help, Mr Forrester took to the internet. He wanted to find a way of obtaining justice for the injury the faulty product had caused.

After doing some research into how to make a defective product claim, he found First4Lawyers. He gave us a call and after we took some preliminary information, we were quickly able to put him in touch with a solicitor firm that specialises in his sort of injury claim.

His solicitor was able to secure him £1,600 in compensation.

He said: "I would definitely recommend First4Lawyers to anybody. If anything happened to me again, or anyone else in my family, I would recommend they give First4Lawyers a call. For the whole experience I was looked after really well. I was kept up to date. Five stars all round.”
