    Rob’s notable cases:

    T v. D [2018]

    £5,000,000 lump sum settlement for 54 year old man who sustained a below knee amputation and brachial plexus injuries in a motorcycle accident. Allegations of contributory negligence were pursued. The settlement, which was achieved  at a JSM, included provision for loss of earnings within the telecommunications industry (including a loss of chance claim), prosthetics (including the Empower limb), future care and accommodation

    S v. K  [2019]

    £4.75 million settlement for a 37 year old man who suffered extensive lower limb and abdominal injuries in a workplace accident resulting in a transfemoral amputation. Primary liability was admitted but allegations of contributory negligence were pursued and resisted. As a result of ongoing complications to the stump limiting prosthetic usage, the Claimant decided to undergo osseo-integration surgery under the care of Professor Al-Muderis in Sydney, Australia. An application for an interim payment to fund such surgery was made and conceded by the Defendant at the 11th hour before a contested hearing. The surgery was successful in improving the Claimant’s prosthetic tolerance and quality of life. The case settled approximately 3 months after a failed JSM where the Defendant’s final offer was £4.2 million. During the interim period the Claimant had rejected further improved offers from the Defendant before accepting £4.75 million. The settlement included provision for O-I surgery and future medical treatment / therapies, loss of earnings, care, prosthetics and adapted single level accommodation.

    D –v- Y [2019]

    £2.6m lump sum settlement for a 53 year old man who sustained multiple injuries including serious lower limb injuries and a traumatic brain injury when hit on the pavement by the Defendant’s vehicle. The Claimant received a full rehabilitation package via an independent case manager and prior to settlement was moved into a new fully adapted property.
