Mr H was a Sergeant in the Royal Artillery. Whilst undertaking a training exercise in 2012, he sustained injuries to his knee which resulted in him eventually requiring an above knee amputation. Initially, liability for Mr H's claim was denied. However, the claim progressed through the court progress and before being determined at a trial liability was admitted. The case subsequently continued with reports being obtained to assess Mr H's equipment, accommodation and care needs and his claim was eventually resolved in March 2017. The case settled in excess of £4 million.
Mr H said “Rhiannon Daniel and her team worked tirelessly in gathering all the required reports and documents to help me in my situation, even though at times I thought there would be no resolve I was measured by all that it was the right thing to do, I’m glad I listened. Now, thanks to the hard work that Rhiannon and her team put in, I can now get surgery on my leg, which is not currently available within the UK, and after a successful operation and rehabilitation, it will help improve my quality of life and having two young children to chase after, it should put in a good place to try and keep up!"
