Gaten v Johnson
£470,000 settlement achieved at Joint Settlement Meeting in which the Claimant had suffered permanent, or semi-permanent, cognitive deficit from a head injury and psychological symptoms arising out of a serious road traffic accident.
There were multiple experts on both sides and a significant dispute as to the diagnosis, cause and likely duration of the Claimant’s condition. A trial was due to take place in January 2018. The compromise made allowance for both the risk of permanent significant disability, as well as the possibility of improvement with further treatment.
