36-year-old Polish Warehouse worker settles his head injury claim for £400,000

24th March 2016

Marcus Grant (instructed by Laura Harper of Thompsons) appeared for the Claimant in an action arising from a motorcycle accident.

The Claimant, then a 32-year-old Warehouse operative sustained a severe brain injury, diplopia, a stutter, a wrist fracture, erectile dysfunction and a major depressive disorder. Despite the severity of his injuries, and demonstrating commendable grit and determination he returned to work within 4 months of the accident to a blue chip employer who made significant adjustments to accommodate him. He sustained a personality change as a result of the head injury that made him stubborn and insubordinate at work. 42 months after the accident he was disciplined at work and demoted from operating machinery to working on a production line with a resulting reduction in his earning capacity. The lion’s share of the settlement sum reflected his reduced prospects in the labour market and his general damages award. The case settled through negotiation.
