Successful Personal Injury Settlement for Severely Brain Injured Client
Louise Jukes, Partner in our Personal Injury team, recently settled a complex case for a child who, at the age five, suffered a fall from height resulting in brain injury.
The injuries sustained by the child have had a profound effect on his formative years and his lifestyle. Now, as a young adult, he remains vulnerable and will face differing challenges throughout his adult life.
For Louise and her legal team, this complex case involved many medical experts, the need to involve the Court of Protection and to instruct a deputy to help manage her client’s future finances and welfare.
Due to the age of the child, the complexities of his injuries and the ongoing impact on his future life, the judge approved the settlement and awarded the client a significant compensation payment.
Commenting on the outcome, Louise said “I am delighted we reached the best possible outcome and settlement for my client whose life changed dramatically on the day of his fall” “My thanks go to our legal team and Counsel, Mr Jeremy Ford.” Jeremy Ford is from 9 Gough Square Chambers.
