Compensation has been recovered for the bereaved family of a man fatally stabbed by a mental health patient who had absconded from a psychiatric unit and in respect of whom the mental health services failed to arrange any follow up, or to arrange any care in the community. The family were represented by the personal injury team at Leigh Day.

" At a time where our lives were completely devastated and our confidence in the systems in place in this country was shattered, being placed in the hands of Sally Moore and her team was completely reassuring. We will continue to feel indebted to the kindness and compassion shown to us through total professionalism for my lifetime and for the next generation and perhaps even beyond that. Thank you."
