We acted for the wife (aged 34) of a soldier based at Dalton barracks in Oxfordshire. On 9th July 2010, she was walking past the main guardroom when the soldier on duty lowered the barrier; it inadvertently struck her left leg, causing a soft tissue injury. It took her about 12 months before she was fully recovered from this injury. She did not suffer a loss of earnings.
A letter of claim was sent to the MOD and we were able to negotiate a settlement on her behalf.
S. J. Edney solicitors obtained compensation of £2,300 for this client during 2011
