Robert Smith settles claim at JSM  for a below knee amputee at £1.5 million. Liability, contributory negligence and quantum remained in dispute.

Robert Smith acted on behalf of a quarry man that suffered multiple physical injuries when he fell 30 feet from the quarry face, eventually culminating in below knee amputation. Liability remained in dispute. The claim involved expert evidence on the geological condition of the quarry and the systems of work in place, in particular the restraint techniques for working at height. Contributory negligence was very much a live issue. There was a significant dispute between the parties on quantum. At JSM the parties reached a compromise in the sum of £1.5 million.
