B v H


Dates of case
19 May 20021

Lionel represented the Defendant (instructed by John Lezemore and Carley Howett at DWF) in a fibromyalgia case pleaded at around £2.85 million. The Claimant contended that she had developed a permanent and significant aggravation of pre-existing fibromyalgia and a (new) SSD that had prevented her from returning to work as a teacher. The claim assumed that she would continue to require significant care and housing adaptations. In addition to questions of quantification, the critical issue was causation, including whether and if so when she would have become similarly disabled in future. The matter settled for a low six-figure sum at less than 10% of the pleaded value of the claim following an all-day JSM.
