High Court approval of settlement of brain injury claim


Alex Glassbrook (instructed by Gurbir Thethy of DWF) represented the Defendant insurer in a claim for alleged brain injuries.

The Claimant, who made his claim on the basis that he lacked capacity, suffered injury which he alleged included organic brain injury, with lasting and catastrophic effects, including significant limitations of mobility and personal independence.

The evidence in the claim included large amounts of contested expert opinion (medical and otherwise), sophisticated MRI scans and extensive and detailed evidence of the Claimant’s capabilities. Credibility was in issue.

After negotiation, an agreement was put to the court under CPR Part 21 for significantly less than the pleaded value of the claim, and was approved.
