Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Cases Citation

Unrep

Representing an 81 year Claimant at an Approval hearing in respect of serious injuries sustained as a result of falling underneath a Patient Transport Service that she was intending to board. The vehicle moved despite the driver having exited the vehicle to assist the Claimant.

Liability was vigorously disputed by 3 Defendants for +3 years until a Summary Judgment application forced a complete concession. The matter settled shortly thereafter, following a JSM in circumstances which it was hoped would enable C to move out of the state-funded care home she had been resident in as a result of the accident and into her own accommodation with a private care regime. She was unable to mobilise independently due to her injuries and was reliant on full time care, but the evidence indicated her life expectancy was significantly compromised by reason of both pre and post-accident health issues. That, combined with the effect of Covid restrictions on her care home, necessitated an urgent resolution of the proceedings to enable her to fund her move.

Master McCloud approved settlement for £850,000.   Instructed by Michael Wangermann at Ashtons Legal.
