The Injury Lawyers help injured worker recover £12,000 in compensation for neck injury

workplace accidents

Our client was unfortunately struck by a falling object in the workplace that had become loose due to heat from welding. He was struck hard by the object that weighed around 200kg, suffering injuries to the neck and the back, which also (as is common) radiated down in to the shoulder and arm.

This was an injury that could have been far more serious. It could have paralysed the claimant for life, and medical professionals noted that our client was really lucky to be alive.

For the pain, suffering and loss our client endured, we fought for an award of compensation in sum of £12,000.

In April 2014, 606 former and current students at the University of Derby were ‘at risk’ of HIV after a health worker negligently reused syringe barrels when taking blood tests and conducting vaccinations.

Ian Paterson’s sentence increased from 15 to 20 years

rogue surgeon claims

Notorious breast surgeon, Ian Paterson, was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in May 2017 for carrying out unnecessary and unapproved surgery on a number of patients. However, the Nottingham Court of Appeal found that his current sentence was “not sufficient” and have consequently increased his sentence from 15 years to 20 years.

The news has been welcomed by victims, many of whom have claimed or are claiming compensation as a result of his actions.

The prosecution in the case demonstrated the clear evidence of medical experts that confirmed that the work he carried out for some patients was totally unnecessary, and for others he had intentionally failed to follow protocol as part of what appeared to be some form of “experimental surgery” he was conducting.

Council tenant awarded £4,500 for bathroom sink injury claim

bathroom injury claims

A resident of a council-owned property noticed a leak in her bathroom sink and found that the basin had a large crack across it. She asked the Council to have a look at it and see what could be done to fix it.

A plumber was reportedly sent out to check the bathroom sink, and a little work was carried out on the unit. However, when the claimant pointed out the crack that ran all the way across the sink basin, the plumber ran his fingers along it and identified it as a ‘surface crack’ and suggested there was no need for repair and that no one will be sent out to fix it.

This error led to the claimant suffering injury thereafter.

The claimant unfortunately tripped on the step and fell.

The incident was reported to the owner of the guesthouse and an attendance at A&E was required by the claimant after suffering pain in the neck, shoulder, chest, back, hip, knee and ankle area from the fall.

The Guardian reports that a “significant proportion of patients have been left with traumatic complications”. We ourselves are involved in the legal actions for the use of vaginal mesh implants where things have gone wrong, so we’re no stranger to the issues at hand.

However, as problems continue to arise, the calls for more investigation and more action continue to grow.
