In June 2011, the team compromised a claim which arose out of severe injuries sustained by a client during the course of arthroscopic knee surgery carried out by a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon. Briefly, the purpose of the operation was to repair a tear of the medial meniscus of the client's right knee. Unfortunately, the client's patellar tendon was transected by the Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon during the surgery and the client subsequently developed a significant rupture of his patellar tendon. Over the course of the 12 months following the surgery, the client was required to undergo three further major surgeries and extensive physiotherapy to rectify the damage to the knee. In addition to the extensive physical injuries sustained by him, the client also suffered psychological injuries. Shortly before the case was due to commence in the High Court in Dublin for two weeks, the case settled for a significant sum.
