Our client, a 29-year-old care worker, was physically assaulted by a service user whilst at work. As a result of the assault, she developed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and required Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She also had to seek alternative work, outside the care industry, whilst her initial treatment was underway.

Her employer made an early admission of liability for her accident and the claim was settled out of court.

S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £9,500 for this client during 2014
