In 1994, Mrs R was first diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Mrs R was prescribed Metformin in 1999 and Victoza in 2013 by her local GP as medication for her kidney disease.
As the condition of her kidney continued to worsen, she was referred to a specialist clinic in 2014. This was the first time Mrs R was made aware that she was suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), as well as the seriousness of her kidney condition and that she should not have been prescribed Metformin or Victoza because of her condition.
Mrs R brought her medical negligence claim to Scott Rees in 2015 as she believed her GP had failed to monitor her kidney disease correctly. In effect, this has led to her kidney condition deteriorating much quicker than if she had been treated appropriately from the beginning.
Mrs R was successfully awarded around £13,000 compensation for her medical negligence claim.
Mr G was driving on a motorway in the evening when his car suddenly began to lose power at an alarming rate.
Mr G signalled his hazard lights before pulling his car as far left as possible with there being no hard shoulder present.
Unfortunately a serious road traffic accident followed leaving Mr G hospitalised and in a coma.
The doctor concluded Mr G suffered numerous rib fractures, a collapsed lung and other injuries to his head, back, neck and shoulders.
Mr G's claim was headed by solicitor, Chris Walker, who is a Partner and the Head of Serious Injury at Scott Rees & Co.
With the help of Chris Walker and his dedicated and professional team, we were able to secure a quarter of a million pounds as compensation for Mr G's serious injury claim.
Miss N had an operation after sustaining an injury abroad.
Following her operation back in England, she discovered an abscess had developed where her injury previously was. An abscess is a painful collection of pus, usually caused by a bacterial infection.
Due to misinformation, delays and human err with the initial operation, Miss N was required to return for a second operation 2 days later to treat the initial injury.
Miss N brought her medical negligence claim to Scott Rees as she felt she was treated negligently by the medical professionals at the hospital.
Had the initial operation been carried out correctly, she would not have been in pain and had to sign off work for at least 2 weeks.
We were able to secure around £9,700 compensation for Miss N.
Mr S was leaving the airport parking area and was driving along the exit route when another car had failed to heed a STOP sign and went into the left side of Mr S's vehicle.
The damage to the vehicle meant Mr S's car had to be towed away.
The third party driver responsible for the accident admitted liability straight away.
Upon seeing a medical professional, the doctor confirmed Mr S had sustained soft tissue injury to his neck, upper and lower back.
Within 2 years were able to conclude Mr S's road traffic accident claim and secure around £4,000 compensation.
Mr A was driving up a slip road ready to join a main road when a car from behind tried to cut across and overtake.
A car collision accident occurred causing Mr A's previous back injury to return.
As the third party had a foreign number plate, it took a little longer than normal to locate the third party insurers.
Within a year after bringing his claim to Scott Rees we were able to settle on £3,000 compensation.
Miss H approached us unhappy with the treatment she had received from her previous dentist, whom she had been a patient for many years.
Despite attending regular check-ups, she developed significant gum and periodontal disease that had gone unchecked and untreated until she registered at a new practice.
Whilst the claim process should have been straight-forward, it was complicated by the Defendant dentist who denied liability.
We continued to support Miss H with her dental negligence claim through this challenging period.
When an initial offer was presented by the Defendant, we felt it was too low from our experience. We advised Miss H to reject the early offer of settlement and to continue negotiations.
After 4 years of fighting for Miss H's justice and claim, we secured a damages settlement of around £40,000, which is nearly three times more than originally offered by the Defendant.
Miss W injured herself at work after tripping over some heavy boxes and landing awkwardly on some broken chairs in the store room.
Miss W complained her manager would always over order products, causing the store room to be stacked ceiling high with heavy boxes of products.
This is a clear case of employer negligence as it poses both a fire risk and a movement hazard to employees due to limited vision and movement space in the room.
The doctor confirmed Miss W sustained damage to her jaw as well as bruising to her ribs.
We were able to settle Miss W's workplace accident claim at close to £1,800.
Miss B was in the toilet of a pub when she slipped on unidentified liquid on the floor. It was unidentified as it was quickly mopped up by staff after the incident.
No warning signs were in place to warn people of the wet patch on the floor, which is an occupier's liability.
Miss B used her hands as best as she could to break her fall. Following the accident at the pub, she went straight to hospital where an xray confirmed she had fractured her wrist.
This is a case of occupiers liability as the accident happened on private land in the pub.
Miss B won her case and was awarded approximately £13,000 compensation for her slip, trip and fall claim.
Miss M was picked up as a passenger by her driving instructor as she was due to have her lesson after the current driving student's lesson had finished.
Miss M sat on the back passenger seat as the current driving student drove towards their drop off point.
The road traffic accident occurred at a roundabout when a van following the learner car mistakenly thought they had entered the roundabout.
Without looking forward, as the van driver was focused on the traffic coming from the right, they crashed into the stationary learner car in front.
The doctor confirmed Miss M had not broken anything but sustained whiplash and muscle strains across her neck, back and shoulders.
Miss M brought her passenger accident claim to Scott Rees & Co where our expertise her get £2,500 compensation.
Mr B was on his motorbike and travelling at 60-70mph when the traffic in front slowly sharply.
As Mr B put his hazard lights on and slowed his speed to match the traffic in front, the vehicle behind was traveling too close and was unable to slow in time.
The rear-end collision with the motorbike propelled Mr B into the air and leading to soft tissue injury as he landed.
It took Scott Rees about a year to finalise a £1,600 compensation package for Mr B after his motorcycle accident.
