Ben secured a settlement of £1,000,000 on a provisional damages basis on behalf of a young claimant who was knocked off his motorcycle.
C suffered several fractures in his left leg, an elbow fracture, and a catastrophic nerve injury which caused a profound left foot drop.
Liability was admitted, but there were significant disputes as to the further treatment needed and the extent of the risk of amputation in the future. There were disputes over C’s future earnings capacity and difficult issues around ongoing care and what C’s accommodation needs would be in the longer term. There were also notable disputes on the need for case management and rehabilitation, orthotics and footwear required and other aids and equipment.
The claim settled at a Joint Settlement Meeting on 19th October. The settlement was on a provisional damages basis permitting C to return to court to seek a further sum by way of damages in the event that he requires a below knee amputation.
Ben was instructed by Sean Darney of Scooters and Bikes Legal.
