W v. X



£650,000 settlement for a 28-year-old former hotel receptionist who developed complex PTSD in an assault in her workplace. Breach of duty was admitted. Causation of significant consequential loss was denied. Marcus represented the Claimant.

This case involved looking carefully at the medicine underpinning PTSD, a condition which generally is considered amenable to treatment.

However, there are cases where the symptoms remain entrenched and resistant to treatment, coupled with identification of stressors leading back into childhood.

The Claimant’s symptoms proved to be remarkably resistant to treatment and were significantly aggravated by the litigation, that continued to activate her PTSD triggers.

The case settled on the eve of trial through negotiation.
