Fall in hospital – £12,300

Having suffered a stroke which left him with partially sighted and with poor mobility, Mr Martyn was admitted to hospital for review. While making his bed, nursing staff placed Mr Martyn in a moulded plastic chair with no arms or sides. He fell out of the chair, suffering concussion and died shortly afterwards.

We pursued a claim on behalf of Mr Martyn’s family on the basis that his fall was caused by negligence in the nursing care that he received.
