Chris Barnes KC and David McCormick secure £1.9 million settlement

February 1, 2023

Chris Barnes KC and David McCormick from Exchange Chambers, instructed by serious injury specialist Karen Bannister from NJS Law, have successfully secured a £1.9 million settlement for a 28-year-old man who suffered a below knee amputation following a motorcycle accident in September 2020.

The claimant was injured when riding his motorcycle past a stationary bus and the Defendant pulled out of a junction to the left. Primary liability and contributory negligence were strongly disputed.

The settlement was agreed following constructive discussions with the Defendant’s representatives, notwithstanding an absence of expert evidence, allowing the Claimant to actively pursue his rehabilitation and move on with his life.
