Specialist trade union solicitors Thompsons have secured compensation totalling £9,000 for an elderly gentleman who developed a flesh eating disease following an accident.

Suzanne mcGraw, LawyerThe gentleman was walking on a public pavement in South Lanarkshire alongside a building site when he slipped and fell into a gap between the pavement and a makeshift fence. The fence had been erected by contractors but had been done so in such a way that it didn’t lie flush with the pavement, therefore leaving a gap.

Due to the fact it was dark the victim was unable to see the gap and stumbled, falling into this resulting in a cut to his hand. The injury itself was relatively minor but unfortunately led to the development of necrotising fasciitis – also knows as flesh eating disease – meaning the victim had to spend a period in hospital.

As a member of Unite the Union, the client was entitled to the full support of Thompsons through the Union’s legal services at no cost to himself.

Thompsons Solicitor Susanne McGraw said: “This case illustrates exactly how a straight forward accident can spiral into a chain of unpleasant events for the victim resulting in huge inconvenience. In this case the client through no fault of his own was left with a serious, not to mention frightening condition which left him hospitalised for some time. I am delighted we were able to help him, through his union’s legal services, bringing this to a swift conclusion where his suffering was duly recompensed.”
