Helen Clement, Associate in the Personal Injury team at Lester Aldridge, has secured a five-figure settlement for a client.

Our client claimed damages for personal injury arising from a negligently performed medical procedure by the defendant. As a result of the defendant’s negligence, our client had to undergo a second corrective procedure, causing her to sustain both physical and psychological injuries.

At Lester Aldridge, we have a network of highly respected medical experts, each renowned for their expertise within their specialities.  In this case, we relied on the insights of a radiologist, a plastic surgeon, and a psychiatrist. Their expert reports were instrumental in valuing the claim and making offers to settle, demonstrating the depth of our resources and commitment to our clients.

The defendant failed to respond formally on liability, so court proceedings were issued, and the claim form served to move the claim forward. The parties agreed to various stays of the remainder of the proceedings to attempt settlement of the claim.

After a period of negotiation, the claim was successfully settled.

On settlement of the claim, the client said: “Thank you for all of your support. I know it has been a very long haul for both of us,and I am just glad that it is now just coming to an end,.I can move on and make memories while I’m well enough to enjoy them.”

Helen says: “I am so pleased to have settled the claim for my client especially as the defendant failed to formally respond on the issue of liability throughout the whole of the claim.  I know the settlement will mean a lot to my client and her family.”
