Prison Officer Assaulted at Work

+ Personal Injury
+ Simon Bransby
Simon Bransby

The claimant prison officer was assaulted by an inmate when dealing with a prisoner on “suicide netting”.  The prisoner on the suicide netting should, only be removed by a specialist team, but the claimant was ordered to respond and physically remove the prisoner.  In the process of doing so the prisoner became aggressive and assaulted the claimant.  During the course of this he kicked the claimant in the face, connecting with his nose, which was split open and required surgery.  He also suffered an exacerbation of pre-existing migraines, was unable to wear glasses and had extensive neurological pain in his face.  He was left with low mood and facial scarring.

Liability for the incident was admitted by the prison and the only issues related to value of the claim. 

The claimant was unable to carry out his previous tasks as a front line prison officer and therefore was demoted, suffering significant wage loss and pension loss.

The claim was amicably resolved shortly following a settlement meeting for a six figures.

Let us take it from here.
