We helped our client receive damages for an accident which occurred whilst she was a resident in a care home
We successfully secured compensation for our client who suffered a traumatic amputation as a result of an accident whilst in care. At the time of the accident, our client was resident in a care home. Whilst she was being assisted into the shower, the door was shut onto their hand causing a traumatic amputation injury to her finger.
How we helped
We made a claim directly to the care home and swiftly proceeded to recover a copy of our client’s medical records. The claim was passed to the insurers for the care home for investigation and shortly after they responded to confirm that liability was admitted.
When we were in the process of arranging a medical examination with a hand injury specialist, our client became very poorly. In order to bring her claim to a swift conclusion under the circumstances, we wrote to the third party insurers explaining the unfortunate situation. They came back a short while later with an offer of settlement and our client accepted this offer.
