A senior partner from another law firm asked Ian to represent a 90-year old man who had been attacked and severely injured by another patient while in hospital. After a long battle with the defendents, Ian secured £50,000 in compensation.

Hospital ruled they had failed in their duty of care

He successfully argued that the hospital had failed in their duty of care when transferring the assailant to the same ward as the claimant; failed to follow security procedures once the assailant became violent; failed to ensure staff had received adequate training; that procedures were not followed and that onsite security had failed to respond promptly once the alarm had been raised.
