What are the most common farming accidents?
Over 300,000 people in Britain work in the agricultural sector today. Many farmers and farm workers were raised in farming families or communities and are proud of the rewarding work...
Mr P was riding his motorcycle when he was knocked off. Mr P sustained complex multiple injuries. There was an issue as to whether Mr P had suffered post-concussional syndrome or a brain injury. Mr P had multiple complex fractures to his ankle which would lead to significant long term symptoms. His back pain was due to a direct injury and the indirect effect of an altered gait. Mr P also had psychological injury (either moderate depressive episode or an adjustment disorder) and problems with cognition (memory, concentration, executive function), and mood (irritability, frustration). There was a dispute with the Defendants over whether he had developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Mr P could not return to his former job which was physically demanding.
The Defendants claimed that Mr P was exaggerating his symptoms. They denied that Mr P had Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome and disclosed surveillance evidence that was incomplete. We challenged reliance on this evidence which had been selectively edited.
The case proceeded to trial and was settled minutes before the parties walked into the court room for the Judge to hear the evidence with the Defendants increasing their previous offer.
