Compensation recovered for clients in September

High value compensation claims recovered by Clarke Willmott

Clarke Willmott’s personal injury and medical negligence teams have had a busy time since the end of the summer.

The department is used to recovering substantial amounts of compensation on behalf of its clients but over a three week period in September 2012 claims were settled on behalf of four separate clients with a total value of £15 million.

Together these cases reflect the diverse nature of the work undertaken and included two clinical negligence claims, one on behalf of an adult and the other for a child, a young man injured in a motorcycle accident and a Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)award arising from a serious assault.

All the clients were, however, seriously disabled and had a need for substantial future care.

Some of the damages recovered will be paid by way of a guaranteed annual sum to provide for future care for the lifetime of the individual. This is known as a periodical payment order and has become a popular way on ensuring a lifelong facility to pay care costs.

We are specialists in high value compensation claims. If you require further information about a claim of this nature please contact one of our specialists.
