Psychiatric Injury Claim Client Story

Mr W was involved in the Ladbroke Grove rail crash. After the collision, Mr W managed to help people to climb out of the train which had overturned in the accident. He saw many fatalities and casualties and, as a result, Mr W sustained extensive psychiatric injuries.

Mr W initially instructed a firm of solicitors who were handling a number of claims for people who had suffered minor injuries in the same accident. Mr W was being advised to accept an offer of £12,500, which did not take into account Mr W’s extensive psychological trauma nor the impact the accident had on his career and life long ambition to work in the City.

Following the accident, Mr W was offered a job in the City which required him to commute using both a train and the tube. He was required to go on international business trips which meant he had to fly. Four months after securing his new job, Mr W had a nervous breakdown and was having suicidal thoughts due to the psychological trauma sustained in his accident. His condition had deteriorated to such an extent that he was unable to continue working and commuting.

Our team took over the case having a full appreciation of the injury sustained and the impact the accident was having on Mr W’s day-to-day life.

The claim was successfully concluded and Mr W was awarded damages in excess of £800,000.
