Mrs B had been suffering from chronic back pain for a number of years. She had been advised there were few treatment options, undergoing a number of steroid injections. In July 2012, Mrs B decided to have spinal surgery in response to the ever worsening back pain. The operation appeared to go without complications and post operative symptoms were encouraging. However, 6 weeks post-op Mrs B felt a sharp pain in her lower back after picking up a heavy object. From then she began to suffer considerable lower back pain which radiated into her hip and leg.
Following a letter of claim, we have managed to get Mrs B compensation amounting to a 5 figure settlement.
