Jill Greenfield acted for Paul who was knocked off his bike by a motorcyclist. He suffered severe brain damage.

Whilst liability was admitted, quantum was a different matter. The defendants sought to dispute £2million of the full claim value of £3.5million.

They suggested that the local authority were duty bound to pay for his care, not the defendant.

This argument was totally rejected and following negotiations, the defendants settled the claim for £3.35million. This will pay for his care for the rest of his life and provides income for his family.
