£9.25 million settlement for Will Waldron QC and Pankaj Madan

October 25, 2021

Will Waldron QC and Pankaj Madan from Exchange Chambers have secured a settlement of £9.25 million for a catastrophically injured young man.

The claimant was involved in a serious road traffic accident at the age of thirteen, leaving him with a range of life changing injuries, including catastrophic brain injury.

In a long-running, sensitive and complex case, interim payments covered the cost of highly-effective rehabilitation and care, including a place at TRU, a specialist ABI rehabilitation facility which operates within residential units and community outreach to provide a full pathway of active rehabilitation, pre-community re-entry, supported living and community re-integration.

Utilising extensive expert evidence, Will Waldron QC and Pankaj Madan have now settled the case for £9.25 million on a lump sum basis. With the claimant lacking capacity as a result of his injuries, the Court approved the settlement, saying that in the particular and unique circumstances of the case, it represented the best outcome for the claimant.
