Nicholas’ client suffered from physical injuries to his back and hand. He also suffered from major psychological depression. Due to the extent of the injuries sustained, Nicholas’ client had to take ill health retirement.

Negotiations took place and Nicholas successfully secured £200,000 in compensation for his client. The settlement will help Nicholas’ client in everyday life during his retirement.
