£3.6 Million Compensation for Road Accident Brain Injury Victim

Our client Mr E sustained severe head injuries in a road traffic accident caused by the negligent driving of another road user.

Mr E's brain injuries were permanent and Coles Miller was able to settle the case out of court for the sum of £3.6 million in compensation. We were able to secure this sum for our client despite the fact that the other side disputed liability. 

We were also instrumental in establishing a trust for the management of the damages for the future care and support of our client.
 

PC – Personal Injury Trust - £900,000 Damages

Our client was a passenger in a motor car being driven by the defendant who lost control of the vehicle, leaving a road and striking a wall.  The claimant suffered debilitating injuries including severe brain damage. There were issues of contributory negligence as the claimant was not wearing a seatbelt and knowingly got in a car with an intoxicated driver.

Despite these challenges this firm was successful in securing an award of £900,000 and establishing a personal injury trust to secure this client’s future. Adrian Cormack, head of the Personal Injury department, sits as a professional trustee, ensuring that our client’s needs are met and that he will have a lifelong income.

Through his tenacious commitment to the client, Adrian Cormack demonstrates that he will work tirelessly in order to achieve a positive outcome, all the time, every time.
 

H v Farnborough - £312,352 Settlement

Chris Whittle, a Partner in the PI department acted for the 44-year-old claimant who suffered a very serious leg injury in a motorcycle accident.

Liability was in dispute, although once proceedings were issued the defendant’s dealt with the claim in full.

The loss of earnings claim was the biggest issue. The claimant was employed as a window fitter but he had recently qualified as motorcycle instructor, although had yet to start working in this area. As a result of the injury he was unable to continue fitting windows and would never ride a motorcycle again.

By liaising with motorcycle training schools in the client’s area a picture was built up as to what his earnings might have been but for the accident and with the assistance of an employment consultant a picture of his actual earning capacity was built up, together with the retraining needs that he had.

The claimant lived in Eastbourne which is a six-hour round trip from our offices but Chris Whittle visited him at each key stage of the claim to ensure that the claimant fully understood what was going on with the case and to ensure that advice was understood and instructions were properly informed.

The claim settled for £312,352.
