A truck driver appealed against the apportionment of 30 per cent of the responsibility for a road traffic accident in which the wing mirror of his truck struck and injured a child who stepped out into the road from behind a parked car.
The claimant was a midwife involved with the delivery of a baby. She had to use an electronic foetal monitor that had a number of wires, which became entangled around her foot causing her to fall and injure her hip.
The claimant was a council driver.
The claimant worked in the anaesthetic room in an operating theatre. She was working with a healthcare assistant to move a patient from his bed onto the operating trolley.
Normal order for costs where claimant accepts money out of time
The defendants appealed against a Costs Order made by a Judge when she approved the settlement of a claim giving a claimant permission to accept, out of time, a sum paid into court by the defendants pursuant to Part 36.
