02 May Re H
In this case we represented a father who had previously had findings of non-accidental injury made against him. The mother sought to re-open the findings due to a change in expert opinion which needed to be explored. This was agreed by the father. During the re-opening of the finding of fact hearing further medical experts were instructed, a Neonatologist and a Paediatric Radiologist. Evidence was heard in the re-opened finding of fact hearing and the Court was invited by the parties not to make any findings of non-accidental injury against the parents. The Local Authority officially withdrew their application for the findings. The parents were found to have non accidentally caused the injuries which they had previously been found to have caused.
