Today I’m taking a detour from telling what happened to me in my Accident and Personal Injury Claim and all the fraud and corruption in the legal system that surrounded it.
However, it’s a story that’s highly relevant to my case, and something which I don’t believe would have been possible had Professor Michael Trimble not gotten away with the fraud he perpetrated in my case.
Professor Trimble was the ‘Expert Witness’ in the Billie Joe Jenkins murder case in the third trial. He gave expert witness that everyone found suspect, but which put enough doubt into the minds of the jurors that after two trials and six years in prison, was enough to clear Sion Jenkins of the murder. Although, hardly anyone else in the entire Country thought him innocent, that little bit of doubt was enough for a jury, and it got him off.
I’m writing this now because the story is current in the British Press at the moment.
Five years after my accident, on the 24th March 2000, I was sent to Bristol Oncology Department for MRI, at the behest of Professor Michael Trimble.
The reason for this was because he felt my general weakness in my arms and legs was ‘unexplained’ by my recorded injuries.
I had been negligently treated by Poole NHS Trust hospital and left with a broken neck, back, coccyx, a Syrinx in my spinal cord, a deviated septum with Dural Tears and Arachnoid Cysts from the accident. However, none of these had been ‘officially’ found at that time as my lawyer was married to Dr Paul W Thompson at Poole Hospital and used to be a Nurse there.
Because of this she had a huge Conflict of Interest in taking my case on in the first place after I told her I hadn’t been seen by a Neurologist and a nurse had re-broken my wrist whilst in hospital.
So from the day I hired her, she covered up the hospitals negligence at my expense. She even used my Legal Aid Fund to pay the Medical Experts at the hospital to cover up their Negligence for the hospital. This was usually done on NHS appointments, so was a Double Fraud.
So Professor Michael Trimble insisted on MRI of my Brain and full spine. My lawyer failed to tell me about the spinal MRI and only told me they would be MR Imaging my Brain, knee and elbow. I spent Three and a Quarter Hours in the scanner, which went down over a cage that was over my chest, they then put my arm to the side and MRI'd my lower spine. Of course I didn't know this was what was happening at the time. The hospital told me this section was for positioning purposes, so they had obviously been told not to tell me my spine was being MRI'd.
The MRI of my knee and elbow took a total of one hour. Allowing 40 minutes for the Brain MRI and a total of 15 mins for moving and setting up new scans, this leaves One Hour and Twenty Minutes unaccounted for. The exact same amount of time it would take to MRI an entire spine. This is borne out by the Time Stamps on the MRI's. Full proof of everyone's Corruption and Fraud.
She and all my supposed Medical Experts knew I had a Broken neck, back and Syrinx already from my symptoms and problems. They also knew I had a Deviated Septum with Dural Tears causing CSF leak.
No one had any intention of telling me when the MRI showed all these injuries up. They had all committed crimes of Fraud & Deception which they now had to 'Cover Up'.
I came home one day a few weeks after the MRI to find an answerphone message on my phone which was meant for Dr Morgan-Hughes of Queen Square, London.
He was the Nuerologist for the opposition, who had believed me and made a very true report of my Brain Injury. But, as no one had asked him to look into the possibility of the other injuries, he hadn’t bothered. He was after all working for the opposition.
The phone call was from Dorothy Sproule of Beachcroft Wansbroughs, who said and I quote, “Professor Trimble would like to get all the experts in this case together. He feels that if he can get everyone together he can put the blame for Mrs Kendall’s Syrinx on her childhood accident'. He was trying to manipulate Dr Morgan-Hughes as he had failed to agree with him.
I phoned my Solicitor Karen Thompson. She told me not to worry, I had an appointment with Dr Nick Moffat that afternoon. I had no such appointment.
She told me the letter must have gone astray and within an hour or two I had a phone call from Nick Moffat arranging a meeting for that day or the day after.
When I asked her what was 'Syrinx', she told me it was nothing. At that point, she stole over £2million in damages from me, and left me to suffer for the rest of my life.
You see 'Syrinx' is something, it’s a hole in my spinal cord that can get bigger, go up to my brain and kill me.
It could already have killed me If not for my husband rescuscitating me regularly, it still could.
Syrinx causes very nasty symptoms, was caused by my accident, and explained all my so far unexplained symptoms that everyone had covered up. Why? Because they were frightened I’d sue the hospital. Karen Thompson had deliberately done everything wrong in my case. She hadn’t sent me to any ‘medical experts’ relevant to or qualified to be Medical Experts in my case for my most serious injuries, because she didn’t want them found. She had simply been creaming my Legal Aid Fund to the benefit of herself, her law firm and her medical friends at the same hospital who had negligently treated me after my accident. She essentially paid my Medical Experts from my Legal Aid Fund to cover up the Negligence of the hospital, themselves and their peers.
Professor Michael Trimble knew this, as did Dorothy Sproule of Beachcroft. Incidentally she swapped firms after I found out about my Syrinx in 2009 and is now at Greenwoods in Bristol.
When I went to see Dr Nick Moffat, I took the answerphone tape, as I said I would when he phoned me. He refused to play the tape saying his machine was digital.
When I explained what was on the tape, he said not to worry Professor Trimble was always doing this to him, right back to when they were studying together!
So they were lifelong friends. When I asked him what Syrinx meant? He told me, it was a medical term for weakness.
Within a few weeks of the MRI of my spine I was suddenly told I now had a Barrister, who was allocated by Legal Aid. I’d asked If we could chose one, and was told 'No, but we’d been very lucky as he was quite high up for a Legal Aid Barrister.'
Even this wasn't the truth, Mark Lomas had been employed and paid from my Legal Aid Fund, for the past three years! Three Partners and Karen Thompson had met with him in 1997 to work out how best to proceed to cover up Poole NHS Trust's Negligence, while working for me and charging it all to my Legal Aid Fund.
We had to meet with him all of a sudden so I took the tape of the phone conversation which I felt was evidence Dorothy Sproule and Professor Trimble were trying to pervert the course of Justice. Again, they refused to listen to it, saying they would do so later, and then Tina Martell took the tape and left the room with it.
Mark Lomas later wrote a pretty good report, which I had to return immediately with the excuse it was the only copy. After receiving an offer from the opposition a few months later I was told, as a woman with a Brain Injury and not having a Legal Friend, as required by Law, that I had to 'decide whether to take the offer' with no help from anyone. Even my husband wasn't allowed to help me as Karen Thompson said he may have 'alterior motives', and she wasn't allowed to advise me. Then she told me I wouldn't get anything if the judge awarded a penny less and would be liable for everyone's costs. Then I received a new copy of Mark Lomas report, and was told this was the report to the judge. The new report had everything relating to my Brain Injury and Severe Spinal Cord Injury removed from it. I hadn’t had a Brain MRI as they felt it unnecessary! Which was a blatant lie, He had seen the report of the Full Spinal MRI as he accidentally used the date of the reports of the MRI when commenting on one of the Dr's reports. The Dr hadn't used those dates. So everyone, all my Dr’s, Lawyers, Lester Aldridge, and Mark Lomas lied to cover up my Injuries. I panicked, I was confused, I had a Brain Injury and couldn't understand. I phoned my lawyer angry and in the conversation mentioned I wanted to change lawyers, I was calmed down and made to believe I was just being silly, everything was OK. She would get it amended, it was just an oversight. I was told I couldn't change lawyers the Judge would frown on it, she held my Legal Aid Certificat and it wasn't transferrable. I believed her that it was just me unable to understand, as I know I don't understand things, and I know I have a Brain Injury. It has taken me three years to work out what happened because I have a Brain Injury. It was impossible for me to understand anything I was being manipulated into. If I hadn't been bullied into settling at this point or If I'd found out about my Spinal Injuries, Lester Aldridge would have had to start again from the beginning. Professor Michael Trimble must have thought all his Christmas’ had come at once!
When I looked up 'Syrinx' on the www, I could find nothing apart from a little box on the bottom of a page at Serious Injury Lawyers website, about how a motorcyclist was left paraplegic from Syrinx. I had been reassured this would not be happening to me, I could walk couldn’t I?
The ‘Expert Witness’ testimony of Professor Michael Trimble is completely untrustworthy as he knowingly led the cover up of very serious injuries in my Personal Injury Claim, just to win his case, and for money. It seems to be what interests these people most, not Justice, or what’s right.
If he hadn’t got away with doing this to me? Perhaps Sion Jenkins would still be in jail, convicted of murder.
