L v S

October 2020

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

Achieved a net settlement of £3.5m on behalf of a Claimant who was rendered tetraplegic when he walked out in front of a car with the red pedestrian light against him (led by Simon Browne QC).

Primary liability, causation and contributory negligence remained in issue as did the future care claim which involved a significant dispute on the extent of the future care package in the face of existing statutory funding.

Other key matters in issue included life expectancy, a lost years pension claim and the cost of purchasing and adapting suitable accommodation.

Instructed by Amber Braybrooke of Slater Gordon.
