Claimant injured whilst delivering a sofa successfully challenged medical evidence increasing value of claim by £10,000.00
I represented a Claimant who sustained a complicated knee injury whilst delivering a sofa.
The Defendant admitted liability and the Claimant was examined by a Consultant Orthopaedic expert who reviewed the Claimant’s medical records.
The Claimant had a history of knee problems which included undergoing knee surgery. However the Claimant had been symptom free for 4 years before the accident.
Initially the expert suggested the accident caused a minor injury that resolved within a few months and any ongoing symptom were not accident related. However upon further consideration of the Claimant’s medical records and the Claimant’s testimony regarding his pre and post- accident capacity, the expert extended this prognosis to 3 – 5 years.
The claim settled without the need to issue proceedings and includes an award for personal injury, care and assistance, travel and medical expenses.
