Personal Injury

As we all know personal injury hurts, yet being injured becomes more upsetting when it is unprovoked and avoidable given foresight. Fraser George and Associates Limited have acted in cases, which have involved personal injury brought about by many differing unprovoked circumstances.

Notable personal injury cases in which Fraser George have acted are:-

In the Plymouth Combined Courts – Small v Asda Stores Limited

As Claimant expert in a case involving the use of hair straighteners. The Claimant purchased the hair straighteners from Asda Stores Limited and in the course of using such, suffered an electrical shock, which in the course of the event inflicted burns and muscle damage. The hair straighteners were returned subsequently tested in accordance BS EN 60335 on behalf of Asda Stores Limited by and independent test laboratory. The straighteners were deemed through testing, not to be at fault however, on studying the test regime applied by the laboratory, Fraser George identified that the straighteners had not been tested akin to standard use and storage of the straighteners.

In the Uxbridge County Court – Bhamra v Heathrow Airport Holdings Limited

As Claimant expert in a case involving the use of a hand drier in a public convenience, which emitted sparks thus inflicting burn injuries to the Claimant who placed wet hands into the airflow of the drier. According to the facilities management/maintenance department of Heathrow, the drier had been recently serviced and given its design it was not possible for the direr to emit sparks. Fraser George indicated that the design of drier did indeed allow sparks to be emitted and that the service regime adopted by Heathrow did not account for component parts within the drier, which could cause sparks

Before the Central London Family Court, concerning, Angle Gordon, Sherika Spence and Ronaldo McKenzie

As prosecution expert in the harrowing case of child abuse, where a standard electric fan heater was proposed to have been used to purposefully inflict injuries to three children. Fraser George inspected the fan heater and reported temperature profile of the heater output relative to time.

For Fentons Solicitors acting for Shirley v Barclays Bank

As prosecution expert, assigned by Liverpool Victoria Insurance Company to aid the recovering of losses for damage caused by a fire, with the aim to identify the source of the fire within a domestic electrical wiring system. The causation of the fire was proposed by the Defending party, by the installation of a faulty circuit breaker, which was subject of a product recall notice issued by its manufacturers. However, with sound reasoning and with reference to hard historical evidence obtained from the fire, it was suggested on the balance of probabilities, that the fire had actually started due to the installation of electrical cables of insufficient size and therefore energy carrying capacity, the cables duly overheating and igniting the fire.
