A v T & Aviva


Dates of case
May 2020

Lionel represented the Defendant (instructed by Daniel Jordon at DWF) in a High Court chronic pain case originally pleaded at £2 million. The Claimant contended that she had developed a permanent somatising condition that prevented her from working after suffering a fractured ankle.

There were serious credibility issues as a result of previous documented instances of dishonesty; and the Defendant disputed both the credibility of the Claimant’s account, causation and the negative prognosis. The case also involved issues of how future earning capacity should be assessed where there is predisposition to similar disability. The matter settled for a confidential low six figure sum well below the pleaded value at a Joint Settlement Meeting.
