Will Young settles RTA brain injury claim for £525,000

Outer Temple’s Will Young has recently settled a brain injury claim for £525,000 as a result of a road traffic accident.

Will was instructed by the Claimant in a case involving a cycling accident leading to brain injury. The Claimant was struck by a lorry driven by the Defendant’s employee when riding her bicycle. She suffered a traumatic brain injury, including a fractured skull leading to a craniotomy. Thankfully she made a good recovery, given the severity of the original injury, although it was complicated by significant psychiatric and psychological symptoms.

She was able to return to work, albeit on reduced hours, and she would need a degree of care and assistance in future.

She had not been wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, and the expert evidence suggested that at least some of the injuries would have been avoided had a helmet been worn.

The claim settled at a joint settlement meeting for the sum of £525,000 (net of any deduction for contributory negligence).

Will was instructed by Anna Wiseman of Stewarts.
