RTA/MIB cases involving motorcycles (see below).
Andrew secured a finding of Fundamental Dishonesty against a Claimant in the case of Hodgkinson V Axa Insurance UK Plc at Middlesbrough County Court. The case involved a collision between the Defendant and Claimant, causing damage to the rear off-side of the Claimant’s vehicle. It was subsequently found that the principal witness in the case had, at the time, been in a relationship with the Claimant. Andrew has written a case note with more information on this result.
Settled a Pain disorder claim following a disputed accident at work for a young mother in excess of a million pounds. Liability resolved then complex causation arguments with covert surveillance addressed. Also found a route through the legal uncertainty of the presentation of accommodation claims following the change in the Discount Rate.
Secured a larger than normal discount for a car on pedestrian RTA brain injury claim in the figure of 75%.
EL slipping case dismissed on the basis of Fundamental Dishonesty and QOCS set aside. Claimant ordered to pay Defendant’s costs of over £20,000.
Successfully defeated Defendant’s causation arguments that a rotator cuff tear in a middle aged male was constitutional in nature as opposed to traumatically induced by lifting heavy loads. Large Ogden disability claim upheld.
Settled a six figure claim for a Claimant whose traumatic lower limb injuries at work were overshadowed by his constitutional Type 1 diabetes. Very complex causation and life expectancy evidence considered.
