T sustained his injuries when on his way home from school. He was 8 at the time. He was hit by a car when attempting to cross the road.
He sustained a very severe brain injury.
Proving who was responsible for the accident was difficult but ultimately the claim was resolved on the basis the driver’s insurers making a substantial contribution towards T’s losses.
T is reliant upon others for all aspects of his daily life. He will never work or achieve any meaningful independence.
The specialist support that he receives from his family and others nonetheless means that he is happy and retains some enjoyment of life.
His case had first been turned down by other solicitors as being too difficult.
