Nine-year old boy with spinal injury receives care and compensation package

Ben was 9 years old when he was spinally injured during the course of medical treatment. His parents contacted local solicitors to investigate a claim. Ten years later, after having explored every avenue of medical investigations, his legal team advised that there was no case and his legal aid certificate was withdrawn. He then sought a second opinion and within 3 months, an agreement on liability was secured and an interim payment of £500,000 was achieved. Within 3 years, a bungalow was purchased, a care package set up and an 8-figure settlement achieved.

Spinal cord injury following a serious assault

Jo was having a night out at a local nightclub with a group of friends. Without any good reason, she was assaulted by one of the doorman from the nightclub. Jo suffered a serious spinal cord injury. The doorman was subsequently found guilty of assault in the Crown Court. Following a referral from the Spinal Injuries Association, Jo met with several solicitors before choosing to instruct us to handle her case. Following complex arguments on law and insurance, the claim eventually settled for a 7 figure sum just days before the final trial.
