The Claimant was a serving prison officer and moving a prisoner from a cell. Whilst doing so his supervising officer, who was not part of the manoeuvre, fell onto my client’s back. He had to give up work on the front line at the age of only 29. He lost his career and a job that he loved. The Ministry of Justice fiercely denied liability and the case went to trial. After 2 full days of evidence, and only minutes before Judgment was due to be handed down, a settlement was reached Whilst not allowed to say anything about the terms of the settlement, the Claimant client was very satisfied with the outcome!
