I was left with a broken arm after an accident at the Ice Rink. After the operation on my arm I should have been received physiotherapy within 10 days. Unfortunately this did not happen and as result I ended up with an extremely stiff shoulder. I am please to say after contacting H.D Partnership I was awarded £5650.00 for the medical negligence and I could not be more grateful. Thank you.
