Lightfoot v Go-Ahead Group
Jonathan Watt-Pringle QC, instructed by DWF LLP, represented Go-Ahead Group. Aged 52, the claimant suffered brain injury when knocked down by a bus. He had serious alcohol and mental health problems before the accident, and a limited life expectancy. Perversely, the accident had the effect of increasing his life expectancy and giving rise to a very substantial full-time care claim.
