Hip Fracture Following Fall At Work

02 October 2018

We acted for a midwife who sustained a nasty fall at work and broke her hip.

We obtained an early admission of liability from the Hospital Trust, however, the level of her injuries and the value of her claim was very much in dispute. We entered into negotiations with the Trust to ensure that our client was adequately compensated for her injury. While she recovered fairly well from her hip fracture and subsequent operation, the incident left her nervous about returning to work and also impacted on the recovery of the knee operation. We ultimately obtained a five figure sum for our client without a need to issue proceedings.

“I was pleased with the helpful manner that Natalie adopted at all times. The clear explanations were a real support to me and gave me confidence that the right approach was adopted.”
