High 7 figure settlement to paraplegic injured in act of terrorism

Aspire Law was instructed to bring a claim for compensation when our client became paraplegic following an act of terrorism involving a vehicle.

A change to the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) scheme ust prior to our client’s injury, allowed those injured during an act of terrorism involving a vehicle to bring a claim for full compensation and not be capped at £500,000 as they would have been under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.

As a result of the change and our specialist legal knowledge, our client was able to receive interim payments to fund his immediate needs. This allowed our client to implement a support package, adapt his home and obtain equipment that enabled independence.

We supported our client and his family throughout the legal process and were able to secure a high 7 figure settlement in 2020, which is thought to be one of the first settlements following the change in law.

Our client is now able to progress with his life, safe in the knowledge that he has the funds to meet his needs over his lifetime.

If you or a close member of your family have recently sustained a spinal cord injury, you will need expert advice and assistance and could be eligible for spinal injury compensation. Please give us a call and one of our spinal injury solicitors will get in touch with you immediately.
