Non-Accidental Injury Case

The Family Law Team represented a Grandmother in London who was falsely accused of fracturing her grandchild’s limbs – the Local Authority were alleging non-accidental injury.  The Grandmother is a Nurse and the allegation, if proven, would have impacted upon her employment and her relationship with all of her grandchildren. We were able to prove that the Grandmother could not have caused one of the injuries due to the Grandmother not having care of the child at the time that injury was assessed by leading experts to have been caused.  We were able to persuade the Court that it was wholly improbable that more than one adult in this professional family would cause injury to a child and the Court held that the fractures were caused unintentionally by one of the other children in the household during either rough play or over exuberant cuddling.  The Grandmother was completely exonerated and the Nursing Council was informed of the very successful outcome protecting her future career.
