Mark Bowman has recovered £250,000 for David following an assault that took place in May 2005.
In the early hours of 08 May 2005, David was asleep at home. His house was broken into by his assailant, who dragged David out of bed and assaulted him.
David was taken by ambulance to Horton Hospital in Banbury where he remained for three weeks. He suffered a severe brain injury in the attack. Initially David was unable to walk without support, was unable to go to the toilet without assistance, was confused, agitated and had reduced concentration and memory.
Further expert evidence was obtained in order to clarify the true extent of David's injuries, which, due to their nature, were easily under-estimated without a proper understanding of head injuries and their presentation. Following appeal of the initial award, an increased offer of £250,000 was made and accepted.
At the conclusion of the case, Mark said:
"This was a very nasty claim in which David suffered life changing injuries. The CICA initially offered a very low figure in compensation for David and I am glad that we were able to produce the evidence necessary for them to increase their award to the final settlement figure. The money should allow David to receive suitable treatment, to continue his rehabilitation and to move on with his life as best he can."
David's mother said:
"We were very happy with the way that FFW dealt with our case, especially in the early stages when things were extremely difficult and sensitive.
We never felt we were one of many cases and were always able to speak to someone if necessary and all emails were answered promptly. We are pleased with the end result and wishFieldfishergood wishes for the future."

Helping UK victims of terrorism abroad
Prior to 2012, British citizens and their families affected by attacks overseas were not eligible for financial support from the British government via the CICA because they sustained their injuries outside the UK. Jill Greenfield pursued a seven-year campaign to have the law changed and for British victims of terrorism abroad to be treated the same as victims of attacks in the UK.
