Dicksons settle yet another multi-million pound claim
Dicksons settle a multi-million pound claim, for a young man. This related to his birth in the early 1980’s. Andrew Martin of Dicksons was instructed by the family of man in his thirties who had a brain injury at birth. It was likely that his mobility would be affected in the future. The award was a lump sum of £2,380,000.00, together with annual payments for life – up to £165,000.00 pa. This would amount to around £8,000,000.00 – £9,000,000.00 (eight to nine million pounds) on a full lump sum basis. Andrew says “tribute should immediately be paid to the parents, who have selflessly cared for their son throughout his life to date. This was a very difficult case to bring due to its age – the incident occurred more than thirty years ago.”
Dicksons have secured over thirty million pounds (£30,000,000.00) for brain injured people over the last twelve months – if the cases had been settled on the traditional lump sum basis. However the system whereby people get a payment each year, helps to secure their future for life.
Andrew Martin is a member of both the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel and the patient charity AvMA which shows his wide experience of dealing with Medical Negligence cases.
