Gillian Towers v South West Ambulance Service
Acted for the claimant in a case involving an ambulance worker run over by her own ambulance. Liability was disputed on this basis that no mechanical defect with the ambulance was ever identified. Eventually a few months before trial an admission of liability was made after concerted pressure in relation to specific disclosure regarding handbrake problems with sister ambulances within the fleet.
A non resolved soft tissue injury led to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Schedule pleaded at £236,321, case settled shortly before trial for £175,000.
