P v W (Unrep)


Marcus Grant represented a 59-year-old self-employed taxi driver recovered £500,000 in respect of an ankle injury that progressed into CRPS following a tripping accident.

She received optimum treatment for the CRPS which did not allay her symptoms. She developed significant body dysmorphia and was unable to work and needed some assistance at home; also, her two storey home was unsuitable for her compromised mobility needs. An accommodation claim was brought relying on George v Pinnock.

The case was defended on the basis that she had made a good recovery by about the 2nd anniversary of the accident when she was initially discharged from the specialised CRPS team at the RNOH and that her presentation to D’s experts thereafter was contaminated by conscious exaggeration.

The case settled through negotiation part way between the Parties’ best positions.
