In April 2013, we settled a claim of £7m for a client who was knocked off their bike and suffered severe spinal cord injuries

Accident at work resulting in serious spinal injury

We also recently helped a client who sustained a high level spinal injury rendering him tetraplegic, no ability to move any part of his body, other than his head. He is completely paralysed and needs high level 24 hour care. He also had to have his house modified. Liability was never admitted so a lot of work was done identifying experts to provide supportive reports. 

The case settled for a 7 figure sum in favour of our client.

Road traffic accident resulting in spinal and head injury

As a result of the accident our client suffered severe spinal injuries and paralysis except for one hand.

This was an extremely sensitive and intricate case and brought many complex challenges to the team involved. They had to carry out detailed quantum investigations with numerous experts to determine whether brain injury was caused by the accident.

There were also issues relating to care package requirements, as well the difficulty in agreeing settlement when future prognosis was uncertain. In addition, the case had implications for future living requirements, assistive technology and a variety of different types of therapy. Life expectancy issues had to be considered in depth.

We obtained damages of £7m for our client.
