UNISON in association with Thompsons Solicitors have won two substantial cases for members of staff in Greater Glasgow Health Board. Both members were injured whilst on duty, one suffered a head injury leaving her with loss of vision and another was struck by a vehicle and suffered a fracture, whilst walking in a hospital corridor.
Both members of staff suffered extreme stress and psychological damage as a result of their injuries. The Health Board accepted that there was a strong vicarious liability in these cases and accepted liability.
We are delighted to have settled for both these members and won over £80,000 in total damages which our members were happy to accept.
