The client sustained an unstable neck fracture and a traumatic brain injury and continues to suffer neck pain, memory loss, balance and fatigue issues and psychological symptoms. The case was settled for £2.8 million.


Chenai’s former client said: “To Chenai and all who worked so hard on behalf of Stuart and myself. We would like to say a massive thank you. Your never ending patience and good humour was a real tonic to both of us and helped us to get to the end of a very difficult time. We will always be very grateful to have had you in our corner to help us through every step of the way. Once again thank you so much.”
