Brain Injured 11 Month Old - Significant Settlement
Substantial damages were secured for a client who had suffered a brain injury - after the previous solicitor had indicated that there would be a problem with causation and difficulty in securing a modest Interim Payment.
Master A was 11 months old when the car he was travelling in was involved in a head on collision with a coach, causing several fatalities and leaving Master A in need of lifelong care. After years of struggle, the first offer made by the defendants was for a seven figure sum in full and final settlement. This was rejected. The case eventually settled for a larger sum - which means Master A will be able to enjoy a quality of life that seemed impossible at one stage.
Throughout the process, substantial interim payments were obtained in order to fund a first class rehabilitation package for Master A. He received physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. As a result, Master A has grown in confidence and leads a happy and healthy life.
