D v D & D


£1.7m settlement for a 42-year-old former department store manager who sustained vestibular injury when hit on the head by a defective metal roller shutter in the course of her employment. Liability was denied. Marcus represented the Claimant.

She developed a cluster of debilitating vestibular symptoms including dizziness, vertigo, migraine headache, hyperacusis, photophobia, tinnitus and fatigue. When fatigues she developed an array of subsequent cognitive difficulties.

Damage to her left utricle was confirmed on Audiovestibular assessment, together with intermittent episodes of BPPV.

She developed secondary psychiatric symptoms satisfying the diagnostic criteria of Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness [“PPPD”]. All of the above were superimposed on a probable mild traumatic brain injury.

She exhausted extensive treatment options in a centre of clinical excellence. The prognosis for further significant recovery was guarded. She needed assistance at home.

The case settled through negotiation shortly before trial on liability and quantum.
