MRH were instructed by LW who suffered a serious spinal injury following from an RTA in September 2008. The client suffered a serious burst fracture to his spine which required numerous operations to stabilise the fracture. The client was left with a weak spine which restricted him in terms of the type of work he could perform. During the proceedings it was important to assess how the client would recover from the surgery to his spine and then to assess the long term restrictions that would be placed upon the client with regards to what he could and could not do. Fortunately the client made a reasonable recovery although he would be unable to perform heavy manual work going forward. There was some disagreement between the medical experts instructed on behalf of both parties but these issues were capable of being resolved amicably. After obtaining all the necessary evidence and presenting the case to the Defendant Solicitors, MRH Solicitors were able to secure an out of court settlement based on a full liability valuation of £137,500.00.
