Simon Browne QC and Ben Casey, achieved a £3.5m settlement on behalf of a Claimant, rendered tetraplegic, when he walked out in front of a car with the red pedestrian light against him.

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.
