How we won nearly £1m for an under-settled road accident claim

Mrs R P of Kent was in a road accident. Her solicitors settled the claim on the basis that she had a whiplash injury. In fact, it was clear from her medical records that she had developed fibromyalgia. We obtained all her medical records and an independent rheumatologist’s report. This indicated that she had developed fibromyalgia as a consequence of the road accident. She was unable to work and needed a good deal of care and assistance with household tasks. This was likely to last for a lengthy period. We recovered nearly £1million for Mrs R P from the insurance company representing her previous solicitors.

How we won £357,000 for a Critical Illness Insurance claim that was initially refused

46-year-old Mr GR was a successful company director who had taken out a Critical Illness Insurance Policy for £356,903. When his symptoms developed and had caused him to give up his job due to incapacity he made a claim against his insurance policy. They refused. Mr GR appointed Brian Barr who instructed a Consultant Rheumatologist. He confirmed the Fibromyalgia diagnosis and more importantly made it clear Mr GR would not be able to go back to work with the condition at this severity. In the face of this evidence, Mr GR’s insurers agreed to settle the claim in full.
