K v D


Richard Wilkinson, instructed by Alex Brown of Dean Wilson solicitors, secured a lump sum award of £4.75m in damages for a 49 year old Claimant who was left with significant orthopaedic symptoms following an RTA in which she sustained multiple injuries. An unusual feature of the case was that she had sustained injuries to both arms and both legs, the effect of which was to compound her resulting disabilities. Despite very significant and extensive rehabilitation, the Claimant remained an intermittent wheelchair user who it was agreed required specially adapted / single level accommodation. It was also agreed her care needs would increase in later life. The Claimant was determined to remain ambulant as much as possible, and the parties had very significantly different views as to her immediate future care needs, in particular the provision of a personal assistant to ensure the Claimant could continue to access the community independently and safely. The Claimant relied on experts in 8 different medical disciplines as well as 3 non-medical disciplines. The claim settled at a JSM in March 2024 in advance of a 10 day trial.
