Client Stories

Slip and fall defence

The insurer for a local municipality approached Field lawyer, Anthony Burden to aggressively defend a negligence claim and contest liability.

Within two weeks of having the file Anthony successfully opposed a previously scheduled Application, and took steps to apply for summary dismissal of the claim. By applying for summary dismissal as soon as possible and questioning the Plaintiff on undertakings, Anthony was able to obtain helpful evidence on quantum moving forward. The co-plaintiff abandoned its claim prior to the Application. The Application for summary dismissal was ultimately dismissed, but leave was granted to re-apply with fuller evidence, which is now underway.

Anthony helped his client gain a better idea of the strength of both parties’ evidence, providing the knowledge needed to confidently defend the claim in a situation where the most recent similar reported cases dated from the 1930s.
