Case

Eleanor Wright v C. McKissock

20/01/2015

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Acted for a young female graduate who suffered a significant foot injury. She faced an inevitable future of arthritis in the ankle and foot. The case centered upon whether she would be Ogden 7 disabled and given the nascent level of her career whether there would be an impact on her. A quirk was that she was also moving to the USA at the time of the accident and her career model was therefore somewhat unusual. Schedule pleaded at £470,500 and concluded at JSM. Settlement reached at £243,189
