Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic Personal Injury Lawyers In London

Anyone with a life-changing injury should have their catastrophic injury claims handled by a personal injury solicitor who is an expert in the field of recovering damages for injuries of the utmost severity.

When a very serious injury is suffered, there will often be irreversible and life changing damage, such as paralysis, severe traumatic brain damage, amputations, severe burns or even death. Whatever the injury, it is essential that a specialist solicitor is instructed who understands the nature of the injury and the need for proper funding to support care, aids, housing and therapy regimes which must often last a lifetime.

We know that seriously injured clients often need long term treatment, and there can be a significant period of adjustment both for our clients and for their families. Most clients require special housing or adaptations, care and support packages, specialist equipment, and early payments to alleviate financial hardship and to establish fully funded private care regimes.

Our Catastrophic Injury Lawyers can act for clients who have suffered:

Latest catastrophic injury settlement

Our client was a 25 year-old Spanish resident who was travelling in his works’ van when the van was hit by a Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV). The HGV driver was travelling at high speed.

The accident resulted in two of our clients’ colleagues being killed. Our client was seated in the offside rearmost seat in the van and he sustained a brain injury and multiple life changing orthopaedic injuries including spinal and pelvic fractures and multiple open fractures of the dominant wrist. He also sustained injuries to his eyes, hearing loss, and ongoing psychological symptoms. He requires multiple ongoing care and treatments and underwent cosmetic camouflage treatment for the facial scarring he sustained.

Due to the severity of his orthopaedic injuries our client was unable to return to his work as an electrician and it was anticipated that he would struggle to remain in fixed long term employment.

Damages awarded

The final settlement for £1 million compensation included our client’s ongoing care needs and loss of future earnings as our client will no longer be able to contribute to the family business which he had been due to inherit.
