Peter has experience of recovering large sums of compensation which take into account not only the pain and suffering of the injured person but also the cost of any ongoing care and rehabilitation they might need, the cost of adapting or purchasing suitable accommodation and any predicted future lost earnings.
Successful Serious Injury Claims
Below, you will find just a small selection of some of the serious injury claims Peter has dealt with in Thompsons Solicitors' Nottingham office.
Leg Amputated after Accident at Work
After a machine exploded at a man’s workplace due to faulty repair work, an object flew out of it and impacted with the man's leg causing severe damage. Several operations were performed to try and repair his leg but were unsuccessful. He eventually had to have his leg amputated.
Peter recovered two interim payments to allow the man to sort out suitable accommodation and start arranging the care he needed. When the case was fully settled Peter recovered a seven figure sum which took into account his permanent disability and the fact that he might not work again.
Crush Injuries in Workplace Accident
Peter's client was a man who suffered serious injuries after he was told to move some heavy objects with the use of a remotely operated crane. The job should have been carried out by two people but on the day of his accident the man was working alone. He accidentally operated the crane before he was in a safe area and was crushed between two of the heavy objects.
He suffered multiple fractures and serious internal injuries. Peter recovered a six figure sum in compensation for him.
Motorcyclist suffers serious spinal injuries
A motorcyclist suffered serious spinal injuries after a road accident. The man was at a specialist motorcycle circuit and had been following a group of other motorcyclists for some time. As he tried to overtake the group, another rider pulled out into his path and collided with him.
The man was in intensive care for several weeks and suffered a broken neck, several broken vertebrae and damage to his spinal column. Peter recovered a six figure sum for the man which took into account his future lost earnings and the ongoing care and equipment he needed to cope with his disabilities.
