The case of the trip in a nightclub car park

Summary

The client had attended a local nightclub and at the end of the evening was going out to her vehicle in the car park of the nightclub when she fell down a step, fracturing her ankle and requiring surgery. The case settled on confidential terms, however we were able to obtain compensation for the client’s pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, voluntary assistance provided by the family and past and future loss of earnings.

The Legal Strategy

We argued on behalf of the client that the car park was inadequately lit and the step our client fell down was not properly marked. Accordingly, we argued that the nightclub operator and the owner of the car park failed to fulfil their duty of care owed to the client. Witnesses were interviewed to refute any allegation that consumption of alcohol contributed to the fall. Photos of the layout at the time of the fall were obtained promptly. Proceedings were issued and the matter settled soon after.

The case of being awake during an operation

Summary

Our client went in for surgery involving a general anaesthetic. Unfortunately, our client was not properly and anaesthetised and as a consequence whilst she was unable to move or speak, she was aware and felt the surgery. One of the most terrifying prospects that would face any patient! Our client suffered significant psychological trauma.

The Legal Strategy

We obtained a report from an expert anaesthetist, who indicated an error in the method and process of the responsible anaesthetist. We then obtained expert opinion as to the diagnosis of our client’s psychological injury.
