Soyab acted on behalf of a motorcyclist who suffered a serious fracture to the leg, requiring a corticotomy. The client was in an external fixator frame for some six months, undergoing several operations during this time. There was a substantial claim for loss of earnings and care. The Defendant engaged in covert video surveillance on several occasions. This was addressed and rebutted by carefully prepared witness statements going through the surveillance in detail. The matter proceeded to a Joint Settlement Meeting with the Defendant walking out on a final offer of £800,000. We negotiated a settlement several weeks later at just under £1,000,000.
We acted on behalf of a motorcyclist who suffered a serious head injury when the driver of a car pulled out from a junction, colliding with the motorcyclist.
The Defendant persistently argued that the motorcyclist was travelling at a higher speed which contributed to the accident and brought about injuries greater than what would have been sustained.
Matters were compounded due to our client suffering a stroke one year post-accident. The Defendant argued the stroke reduced our client’s life expectancy, causing ongoing issues which would have affected the claim for loss of earnings, and brought about a claim for care. This was argued robustly on behalf of our client.
A question mark regarding our client’s life expectancy became a real issue. The Defendant seeking to argue that it had been significantly reduced (accordingly reducing the value of the claim). Again, this was robustly resisted with our own evidence and, to remove it as an issue, a claim for periodical payments advanced so that the issue of life expectancy fell by the wayside.
The matter was settled for just over half a million pounds with an annual payment for life of £55,000.00 increasing every year by an appropriate index link.
Soyab acted on behalf of a pillion passenger who sustained serious fractures to the leg, pelvis and spine as well as a head injury following a road accident. Although the client made a reasonable recovery, it was unlikely they would be able to work again as a self-employed decorator.
Within 12 months of the accident, the Defendant made a significant offer to settle which was, in our view, premature given the outstanding medical evidence and prognosis.
Nevertheless, we arranged a meeting with a senior Barrister (Queen’s Counsel) to go discuss the case in detail, setting out what further evidence was needed as well as the advantages and disadvantages of compromising the claim as opposed to continuing.
This allowed the client to make a fully informed decision, recognising the risks of a premature settlement but understanding that the value of the claim may or may not exceed the amount on offer.
This was one of those rare occasions when a Defendant insurer was prepared to make a realistic offer to settle recognising that it may be over valuing the claim.
