In this case study, we are going to look at the case of Mr B, whose name we have obscured for reasons of privacy. Mr B works in construction and suffered an accident at work, when he was working on the 11th floor of a building site in Paddington. Mr B slipped on a piece of aluminium that was on the floor, while he was carrying a large piece of plywood, suffering a trip injury. Unable to get up, Mr B was taken to the nearby St Mary’s Hospital for treatment by ambulance. The graph here shows the causes of accidents and injuries in the UK’s construction sector. Information is taken from the Health and Safety Executive.
What Injuries were Sustained in this Knee Injury Compensation Case?
At the hospital, Mr B displayed fractured kneecap symptoms and was diagnosed with a fractured kneecap. His knee was operated on and he was kept in hospital for three days. Following his operation, Mr B was eager not to let his broken knee go untreated Mr B sought compensation to cover the costs of private medical treatment. His legal team negotiated interim payments for Mr B, the Claimant, from his employer, the Defendant, to pay for medical treatment in a private hospital, to remove metalwork from his knee.
The Allegation And The Fractured Kneecap Settlement
This claim for a fractured kneecap injury was complicated because the Defendant disputed their liability in the case, throughout the process. Mr B’s employer always alleged that he was at fault for the accident. The first offer of liability put forward by the defendant’s legal team was a 50/50 split in liability, 18 months after the accident took place. Mr B’s personal injury solicitor managed to negotiate this down to split where the Defendant accepted 90% of liability for Mr B’s accident. The Defendant’s team put forward an initial offer of £25,000 in compensation, which was less than what the Claimant’s legal team felt a knee injury compensation award such as this was worth. Mr B’s legal team managed to collect medical and legal evidence that Mr B was entitled to a higher offer. 3 days before the case was due to go out of trial, Mr B was awarded £55,000 out of court in broken knee injury compensation for his case.
