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.

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