Successful Serious Injury and Clinical Negligence Claims
Below, you will find a small selection of the serious injury and clinical negligence claims that Amy has dealt with from Thompsons Solicitors' Cardiff office.
Delayed diagnosis of epilepsy
A child was incorrectly treated with epilepsy medication for almost two years before a correct diagnosis was made. As a result she suffered from significant symptoms and seizures which were highly distressing for her and her family and which in turn resulted in considerable absences from school.
Amy recovered compensation in the region of £20,000 for this client and her family.
Death in a care home due to neglect
A family member, who was severely disabled and required a high level of assistance, was left alone in a care home without supervision for long periods of time. As a result of this neglect she fell and sustained injuries that proved fatal.
Although cases involving elderly claimants do not generally attract high levels of compensation in the courts, Amy was able to obtain around £10,000 for the family including a contribution towards funeral costs.
Fatal road traffic accident
Amy represented a family who lost their beloved father in a road traffic accident as he was walking home one night from the shops. He had been crossing the road only a short distance from his home when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle. Sadly his injuries were fatal.
Amy supported the family through a very difficult time which included an inquest and a police investigation. The driver’s insurers tried to argue that the victim was to blame because he was wearing dark clothing and had not checked the road carefully enough before crossing. Amy negotiated a settlement in the region of £20,000 for the family.
Amy is the Branch Secretary for Headway Merthyr Tydfill. Headway is a charity that provides information, support and services to people affected by brain injury, their family and carers.
