Betty, 76, was successfully represented by Pryers Solicitors after she suffered a fall at home in 2013.

Betty attended her local hospital after suffering the fall where she was given an x-ray and diagnosed with a ‘three-part group NEERS shoulder injury’. She was reviewed in the clinic the following day and it was decided she would receive conservative treatment. She was provided with a shoulder immobiliser.

Betty underwent physiotherapy throughout 2014 but she made little progress. She was then commenced on steroid injections in October 2014. These were noted to have had little effect and she was referred for sub-acromial decompression surgery to remove a bony spur in October 2015. She was assessed in the anaesthetist clinic in November 2015.

However, Betty was not added to the surgery waiting list after this appointment. Her GP chased this up in April 2016 and she was added to the list as a result. She was listed for the surgery in May 2016, but this was postponed due to Betty suffering from a chest infection. She came to have the surgery on in July 2016.

Unfortunately, Betty had a poor outcome following the surgery and still suffers from pain and restricted movement. She still requires steroid injections.

Pryers was able to obtain a report from a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon who confirmed that the delay in surgery was negligent. The Defendant made an offer of £2,500, which Betty was able to accept.
