Case

Thomas v Valero

October 2015

Practice Areas

Personal Injury

The claimant suffered life threatening injuries within an industrial accident. Early involvement and a unified approach by the Defendant legal team pushed a JSM at the earliest opportunity on the claimant’s evidence alone. A reasonable compromise at the lower end of the scale was achieved, allowing the claimant the benefit of finality and the defendant to see a very significant saving in legal costs and resolution of the claimant’s employment. Claim pleaded at over £500,000, settlement reached at £230,000.
