Jackie suffered a serious spinal cord injury during back surgery. Through support from Fletchers, Jackie has regained some independence and is enjoying life in her new home.

Jackie suffered a spinal stroke, when her blood pressure was allowed to remain dangerously low during the operation, resulting in incomplete paraplegia.

“Fletchers are an amazing company, truly amazing. They just cared, they care…you come over as friends, family, and the care side of it is the important part.”

Case timeline

Jackie underwent spinal decompression surgery after she injured her back at work. During the surgery, a negligent incident meant that Jackie suffered a serious spinal cord injury.

Despite the defendant denying liability, Fletchers were able to secure a substantial settlement. This has allowed Jackie to buy a new home, which can be future proofed as her needs change.

Jackie enjoys the independence that her new home gives her and says that her future feels more secure. At weekends, Jackie enjoys spending time with friends at a local hotel on the seafront.
