Notable Settled Cases

CW

Road traffic accident in a Motor’s Insurance Bureau (MIB) untraced case. Primary liability was admitted, but the client’s speed was a potential issue. The client suffered a serious brachial plexus injury, together with a head injury. The client was single without family support, and was discharged from hospital without somewhere to stay. He struggled significantly with depression and low mood following the accident. Cate spoke to the client at least once a week or more, and the case was eventually settled for £3,350,000. Cate was relieved that the money would help the client to move forward with his life, and build a good standard of living for himself and his son.

MD

A road traffic accident involving a single lady living alone who was knocked off her bike. Liability was never admitted, and Counsel’s advice was that the claim would not be successful. The client was a walking tetraplegic who had made an extremely good recovery, but had weakness in her legs together with ongoing pain.  She was however still able to walk and remained independent. Cate secured a settlement of £400,000.
