COMPENSATION FOR INJURY AT WORK

Our client sought damages in relation to a personal injury claim following an incident at work.

The client is employed as a paramedic and was assaulted whilst on call responding to a matter that they had been instructed to attend. Despite being advised it was routine, the Claimant soon found out that unfortunately this was not the case and the patient assaulted her.

The initial valuation was challenged and an agreed settlement was eventually reached.

The claim was finalised out of Court and the Claimant was compensated for both the physical and psychological injuries she sustained. The Claimant was unable to return to work for some time due to fear of similar incidents occurring in the future.

CLAIM FOR AN INJURY AT WORK

The Claimant in this matter sought damages following an accident at work and injuries they had suffered during the course of their employment. They had been employed as a cleaner by a local authority for around 25 years.

The Claimant undertook heavy lifting during their employment and suffered an injury to their back and shoulder as a result of continuous heavy lifting.

Medical evidence was obtained which attributed causation to their employer and so, on this basis, Court proceedings were commenced. Liability was denied throughout, however a generous settlement was reached shortly before the matter was due to come to trial.

CLAIM FOLLOWING A ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

Our client approached Ramsdens after they suffered serious multiple injuries in a road traffic accident.

The Claimant was a passenger in a vehicle driven by a family member, who had a collision with a much heavier vehicle, leaving the Claimant with significant injuries.

Liability was admitted at an early stage but Court proceedings were required to force an interim payment on behalf of the Claimant. A fair settlement was then reached, upon final medical evidence being received.

The Claimant was delighted with the settlement and feels that they were kept very much informed throughout.

COMPENSATION FOR INJURIES AFTER A FALL

The Claimant in this matter sought damages after they had fallen in a public car park and suffered a serious fracture.

Despite being local to the area and knowing it well, a new area had been added to the car park which was dangerous and caused the Claimant serious injury.

Liability was denied throughout but following persistence and the issue of Court proceedings, a settlement was reached which reflected around 75% – a very good result in relation to public liability.

The Claimant was very happy with the settlement and felt that Ramsdens were very sympathetic to their needs.

CLAIM FOR AN INJURY AT WORK

The Claimant in this matter sought damages after they suffered repetitive strain injuries as a result of heavy lifting at work.

Ramsdens approached their employer and despite the fact that it was the employers own occupational health assessment which had diagnosed the injuries, liability remained denied.

It was necessary for Court proceedings to commence to prompt a settlement – the liability denial was maintained but when their own medical evidence at the time of disclosure was that the injuries were caused by their working conditions. Liability could no longer be denied and settlement followed shortly thereafter.

The client was happy with the eventual settlement achieved for them and was most satisfied with the persistence shown by Ramsdens
