Accident at Work - nurse receives fair compensation after fall from ladder
Digby Brown's Edinburgh office represented a nurse who was injured when she fell from a ladder at work. She suffered a fractured wrist, an injury to her neck and depression.
She suffered a loss of earnings and a loss of pension rights. Digby Brown's personal injury solicitors were able to fund reports from a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, a Psychiatrist and a Consulting Actuary using no win no fee funding.
It was the view of the medical experts that her retirement was accelerated by a approximately one year as a result of her injuries.
No offers of compensation were received from the Health Board so our solicitors funded Court Proceedings on behalf of the client.
The solicitors for the health board argued that the client was partly to blame for her work accident and made an offer of £13,000.
With the benefit of our expert legal advice and with the backing of no win no fee, the client was able to reject this offer on the basis it did not reflect the true value of the case. The client rejected a further offer of compensation.
In the end, she accepted an offer of more than double the initial compensation offer of £28,000.
