Initial injury deteriorated causing Mr P. to give up work
Mr P. was injured whilst at work. He was up a ladder collecting hay when the ladder slipped from under him causing him to fall to his injuries. He experienced soft tissue injuries in his shoulder and leg which initially did not appear particularly significant but he went on to develop Compartment Syndrome which significantly restricted his movement in his leg and shoulder and he also developed depression. Initially he contacted us but decided not to proceed with a claim as he was worried about his employer's reaction, his wife persuaded him to continue with the claim which was a good decision as his condition later deteriorated and he had to give up his work. We got him an interim payment of £5000 to assist with his financial difficulties. The case ran to pre trial meeting with both senior and junior counsel and eventually settled for a total of £205,000.
