Claimant wins 100% compensation at second time of asking

 

A personal injury solicitor firm has won £500,000 compensation for a client who suffered life-changing head injuries in a motorcycle accident.

However, what made this case notable was the fact that the firm helped win the settlement from another firm: the one that had initially represented the man's motorcycle accident claim.

Although this initial claim was successful, it resulted in a payout of only £50,000, a sum far below the amount the man's injuries actually warranted.

This undervaluation had arisen as a result of the original medical opinion provided by a retired neurologist. It was found he had misdiagnosed the extent of the rider's head injury, failing to comprehend its true severity.

This misdiagnosis only became apparent six months later, after the claimant had returned to work and noticed that his cognitive abilities were significantly impaired.

A spokesperson from the firm that ensured the man's motorcycle accident injures were properly compensated stated his belief that some firms don't have the skill or capacity to deal with the claims of some individuals. "There are quite a few firms out there who really don't have the proper skills to be dealing with these cases. They dabble and don't know when they are in above their neck," he said.
