Royal Navy Petty Officer obtains £300,000 following skiing accident


Paul Kilcoyne was instructed by Richard Barnes, Head of Civil Litigation at Biscoe’s solicitors in Portsmouth to act for a RN Petty Officer who sustained significant knee injuries following an accident on a  skiing instruction course.

As part of the course the Petty Officer (a skiing novice) was required to ski down hill blindfolded. As a result the Petty Officer went off-piste at speed and crashed. The case settled at a Joint Settlement Meeting for £300,000 net of medical discharge benefits and pension.
