£375K compensation payout for CRPS sufferer who was injured at work

This case study was written thanks to the expertise of our team, including Alex Cohen, Philip Cohen, and Steven Akerman, leading experts in compensation claims for chronic pain and serious injury.

Mr L developed sustained soft tissue injuries following a road traffic accident in September 2015. Prior to the accident, Mr L had worked as a self-employed executive chauffeur. Unfortunately the soft tissue injuries and shock that Mr L suffered as a result of the accident evolved into a chronic pain condition focussed in his lower back, and a disabling central sensitivity syndrome, specifically fibromyalgia syndrome.

Due to the pain, he was unable to work within a month or so of the accident and became reliant on DWP benefits. His symptoms worsened and Mr L became limited in terms of his basic and instrumental activities of daily living.

Mr L’s insurer referred him to a claims management company to pursue his personal injury claim, however two years later Mr L became increasingly dissatisfied with his solicitor for his lack of understanding of the complexity of chronic pain syndrome and fibromyalgia, and changed to Brian Barr Solicitors.

This was an unusually paper-heavy case with several thousand pages of medical, DWP and employment records. With the help of specialist solicitors who were able to understand the complexities of this particular case, Mr L received a significant settlement, helping him to counterbalance the loss of earnings and pension now that he was no longer able to work and enabling him to get the future care and assistance he needs to live his life to the fullest.
