Malvicini v Ealing Primary Care Trust

Damages – Personal injury. The claimant sustained an injury whilst working in a hospice run by the defendant National Health Service Trust. The injury worsened to the point where the claimant had to give up work. The claimant brought an action in personal injury against the defendant for damages. The defendant did not deny the accident but denied that the accident had caused the severity of the claimant's injuries. It suggested that the claimant was a malingerer or unduly weak. The Queen's Bench Division held that the claimant's injuries were genuine and she was entitled to a total award of £765,992.
