In this case study, we are going to look at the case of Mr H, a 55-year-old man who was awarded £10,500 compensation for a ruptured achilles tendon in 2012. Mr H’s injury occured when he came to the help of a woman whose car had rolled against the tree. She had attempted to push start (also known as bump starting the car), but instead had lost control of the car and become trapped between her vehicle and her car door. Mr H kindly tried to help the woman by trying to push the car forward, instead, the car rolled backward crushing his ankle.
What Injuries Were Sustained During This Case?
The injury Mr H sustained was above the left ankle. He found he was intense pain, could not control his foot or put weight on it, which are common ruptured tendon symptoms. Mr H was taken to the Accident and Emergency Department at his local hospital and was diagnosed with a ruptured achilles tendon. Mr H had to undergo ruptured tendon ankle surgery and stay in the hospital for a further two days. For the following 8 weeks, he had to wear a cast below his ankle and use crutches to get around as he was unable to bear weight on his foot. For the two weeks following his cast being removed, he had to wear a rigid plastic boot to move around. But his ruptured achilles tendon wasn’t over yet. Following this, Mr H had to undergo an 8-week course of physiotherapy to restore his full use of his ankle. 9 months on from his accident, he still suffered pains in his ankle and residual scarring as ruptured achilles tendon symptoms. As you can see, Mr H’s ruptured tendon recovery time was long and interfered with his quality of life and work, as he was unable to work for 3 months so lost income.
The Tendon Rupture Allegation
Mr H’s legal team made an allegation that the Claimant, Mr H, had been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of the driver who had lost control of her car, the Defendant. The Claimants legal team alleged that Mr H had suffered a tendon rupture injury as a result of the Defendant losing control of her car.
Car Accident Settlement And Conclusion
Unfortunately, the Defendant did not admit liability for causing the car accident where Mr H suffered his tendon rupture injury. The tendon rupture case proceeded to court. Mr H’s legal case won him his ruptured tendon claim case and he was awarded £10,500 for “pain, suffering and loss of amenity”.
