In this case we represented a mother. The mother was accused of causing a fracture to her young daughter. The child was permitted to reside with a family member with the mother visiting daily. As part of the pre-proceedings stage of this case a Paediatric Radiologist was instructed to considered the cause of the injuries and whether or not it was possible that a sibling could have accidentally caused the fracture. The Paediatric Radiologist accepted that the injury could have been sustained in the manner described by the mother as being caused by the sibling. The Local Auhtority did not issue proceedings. The case did not get to Court. The mother was permitted to take her daughter back to the family home.
