£250,000 Settlement for Jet Ski Accident

Robert Smith settles a claim at trial for a Claimant who suffered a modest fracture to her lumbar spine and subsequently developed a significant psychotic episode for quarter of a million pounds.



January 2016; ‘Re X: Acting for a Claimant who suffered a compression fracture to her lumbar spine in a jet ski accident. Liability was disputed in the first instance and necessitated evidence from a marine expert. The Claimant went on to develop a significant psychotic episode requiring inpatient admission and ECT treatment. This in turn was alleged to have resulted in problems with memory and cognitive function. There was a significant dispute on medical causation between the respective psychiatrists and in respect of the neuro-psychological evidence. The Claim settled on the first day of trial at £250,000."
