Expert advice on head injury compensation
In July 1900, Dr G. Danford Thomas held an inquest at Islington on the body of Louisa Furr (16) a domestic servant and unmarried. She lodged in Redcar Street, Dartmouth Park Hill. She was killed in the carnival procession which paraded Islington in aid of widows and orphans, sufferers of the South African War.
Miss Furr was dressed as a nurse and rode in a car which was pulled by a traction engine, the car, with others, represented an armoured train. At 11p.m., the procession reached the Nag’s Head Tavern, Holloway Road and was there dispersing. Miss Furr and her friend, Ellen Davis were getting off the car whilst it was stationary. Whilst Miss Furr was getting down, the car started moving again and she fell down and was run over.
Death was due to a head injury
A great deal of time was spent giving evidence about the fact that girls were not allowed in the cars in the armoured train and that Miss Furr had been sneaked in by some men riding the procession. It was almost as though the accident had happened purely because she was a female. Miss Furr’s death was immediate due to a head injury. The jury returned with a verdict of accidental death.
