ABC (BY OS) v XYZ: Led by Stephen Killalea QC: Acted for the Claimant in a brain injury case for a man in his mid-fifties which settled for a lump sum of £2,650,000 and a PPO of £275,000 (full liability values of £3,150,000 and a PPO of £323,000 p.a.). The double up 24/7 care package was a “hybrid” of direct employment and agency. A particular appeal of the settlement was the fact that no reverse indemnity was given in respect of local authority funding.
D v M: Acted for a claimant who sustained a pelvic fracture in a road traffic accident. The claim settled for £150,000.
C v H: Acted for a defendant insurer at hearings and a joint settlement meeting in an injury claim involving a significant pension loss. Pleaded at well over £400,000, the claim settled at £200,000.
S v M: Acted for a claimant who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury in a road traffic accident. The claim settled for £140,000.
H v W: Acted for a claimant who sustained a fracture at the knee and developed facial scarring after being hit by a car. The claim settled for £100,000.
C v M: Acted for a student who was injured in a serious road traffic accident, sustaining a spinal injury and psychological trauma. Shortly after Kane’s Schedule of Loss was served, the matter settled for over £100,000.
M v B: Acted on behalf of one of three claimants injured in an industrial explosion. Successfully advised and drafted pleadings to overcome an initial denial of liability. Settled shortly before trial listing for a sum in excess of £100,000.
C v M: Advised a young man who sustained an ankle fracture when knocked from his bicycle. The claim settled for around £120,000.
