T v. E&T (Unrep) 07.09.2018

5th November 2018

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Marcus Grant represented a 35-year-old Trainee Paramedic who recovered £700,000 in respect of a bladder injury whilst attempting to assist in lifting a bariatric patient.

On her case she sustained a low back strain requiring medication that then resulted in her suffering bladder distension leading to an acontractile bladder which caused her profound urinary complications, leading to an entrenched depressive disorder. She was unable to work, needed to self-catheterise for life and required a lot of care in her home life.

The defendants denied liability, and challenged causation and raised issues regarding her pre-accident vulnerability which would have impacted on her earning capacity and on the prognosis of her enduring subjective symptoms, of which a significant component was psychiatrically mediated.

The case settled through negotiation part way between the Parties’ best positions.
