Christopher* was only aged 11 when he was a passenger in his parents car. They were travelling down the road when suddenly a car pulled out in front of them causing a collision.
Christopher sustained a serious head injury and although he made a good physical recovery, he was left with an which affected the frontal lobes of his brain. The frontal lobes regulate personality, control social skills, ability to initiate activity, and memory.
This was a complex case as Christopher’s development needed close monitoring as he matured and continued with his education.
We secured for Christopher which enabled his parents to appoint a case manager to provide him with the support he needed at home and at college in addition to considerably progressing his rehabilitation.
We ensured we gathered enough evidence to support Christopher's case and successfully settled his case for £1.7 million. This will allow Christopher to continue with his rehabilitation and fund the professional care he needs in the future, as well as help him maintain his independence with specialist support for the rest of his life.
