Compensation of £150,000.00 for Road Traffic Accident causing multiple fractures

We acted for a client (now aged 42) who was involved in a serious road traffic accident during November 2012. He was driving on the road close to his home in Cheltenham when he was struck head-on by another car, which was travelling in the wrong lane around a bend. The other driver was subsequently charged by the Police with ‘driving without due care and attention’, although at no time did his insurers admit liability. Our client sustained multiple injuries, including fractures to all four limbs (right leg, right elbow, left arm and left ankle), together with an injury to his bowel requiring a laparotomy and bowel re-section.

Compensation of £318,000.00 for delay in diagnosing and treating a stroke

We have been acting for a client who was unhappy with treatment he received at Great Western Hospital. During February 2012 (when he was only aged 48) he was admitted to the hospital complaining of a number of neurological symptoms (headache, dizziness and general unsteadiness). He was, however, advised that he was suffering with a migraine only and was discharged. About two weeks later, he was readmitted and a diagnosis of a stroke secondary to vertebral artery dissection (VAD) was made.

Delay in Treatment
Emma Cadywould was a 32-year-old, highly accomplished mother of a six-month-old baby. She lost her life in December 2011, after making her way to a railway track and being hit by a train. Emma had been experiencing severe perinatal (or ‘postnatal’) depression. She had been under the care of Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Trust, but the care she received was woefully inadequate.
