Interim payment of £50,000 helps engage the services of a care worker and pay off debts
Mr G. was involved in an accident at work which was no fault of his own. He fell from a 5 foot elevated platform. Since the accident he has been unable to undertake any further employment. Mr G.’s life has been profoundly affected by the accident and as a member of the GMB Union the matter was passed to Digby Brown to pursuer a claim. Mr G. had suffered a brain injury and injuries to his back. Mr G. was seeking compensation for his past and future loss of earnings and for the help and assistance he shall require going forward. Early on in the case we were able to secure through the court an interim award of £50,000 which allowed the pursuer to pay off debts which had accrued and obtain enough money to engage a care worker. The case finally settled only a few days before proof in the Court of Session at a value of £275,000.
