G v. B (Unrep) 10.09.2018

5th November 2018

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Marcus Grant represented a 23-year-old retail worker who recovered £620,000 in respect of a leg injury in a cycling accident which befell him at the age of 18.

He was left with enduring symptoms of pain and reduced stamina for prolonged weightbearing and loading that left the leg unsuited to his preferred trades of bricklaying or working in the motor trade. On his case he had suffered a significant reduction in earning capacity in being forced to look for less physically demanding work away from these trades.

The Defendant was more circumspect about his potential earning capacity in the absence of the accident and more optimistic about his residual earning capacity, contending that his residual subjective symptoms were probably less intrusive than he was making out.

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