Irwin Mitchell's specialist personal injury team in London have assisted a woman to obtain compensation after she sustained a head injury which has left her needing ongoing therapy and assistance.
Our client was travelling in an inflatable vessel which veered too close to a moored yacht and one of the metal railing hit her on the side of the head.
The Defendants admitted liability early in negotiations which allowed us to secure interim payments for our client which enabled her rehabilitation package to be put in place. A private case manager was appointed to coordinate the care package. Our client found cranial osteopathy and vestibular physiotherapy hugely beneficial.
The funds also enabled her to hire a personal assistant to assist her and enable her to continue with her not-for-profit work in various Trustee positions.
The case was settled a few weeks before trial for a total of £385,000 which will enable our client to continue maintenance therapy but, more importantly to her, continue to fund her Personal Assistant to allow her to maintain her charitable activities.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious head or brain injury as the result of an accident, our specialist serious injury solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Brain & Head Injury Compensation Claims page for more information.
