I took Matt to see an independent expert – a professor of vascular surgery – yesterday as part of the evidence gathering for the legal claim. All sorts of measurements were done and questions asked about recovery times and existing problems.
He was very positive about the prognosis. Apart from exercising his leg more – his right thigh muscle has shrunk – and the scarring there were no long term implications.
Looking back over the last nine months we couldn’t have wished to be in a more positive situation. However Matt still deserves significant compensation for the pain he went through, the missed year of uni, and the scarring.
