Injured Pensioner Wins Court Case Over Back Payment Of Pension

IODPA member Angie McLoughlin has successfully won her hearing which was heard at Leeds County Court on Thursday 21st March 2019.

Following a regulation 32(3) review under The Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006 in which Mrs McLoughlin had her original injury award changed from a band 1 to a band 4, her former force West Yorkshire Police, refused to back pay her the loss of her pension for a number of years.

The case was fought on her behalf by Ron Thompson of Haven Solicitors and David Lock of Landmark Chambers.
