Pryers recovered £72,000 in compensation for the family of Mr D who died after a fall at his home.

Mr D had severe arthritis in his back which made it difficult for him to mobilise. He suffered a fall at home and was taken by ambulance to the Defendant Hospital.

The Hospital found that Mr D was uninjured but they were negligent in failing to perform a proper falls risk assessment.

The Hospital should have recognised that Mr D was at a high risk of falling and should not have allowed him to return home alone.

Unfortunately, on his return home, Mr D suffered another fall and this time sustained a fracture to his spine.

He was taken back to the Hospital, where there was further negligence when the spinal fracture was missed.

Mr D was reassured that all was well and was sent home again.  By the time the fracture was eventually diagnosed, he needed a complex spinal surgery.

Sadly, Mr D never recovered from the surgery and he died shortly afterwards.

Pryers acted for Mr D’s family in a medical negligence claim against the Hospital.

Independent medical evidence was obtained, which confirmed that the Hospital had provided poor care, both in the failure to perform a proper falls risk assessment and also in missing the spinal fracture.

Pryers secured an out of court settlement to reflect the pain and suffering that Mr D had been put to in the last year of his life. His family were pleased that the Hospital’s failings had been recognised.
