Kirsten Holly Reay –v- DWF LLP

Wioletta Wojciechowska –v- Galczynski & UK Insurance 
Gaurang acted for the Claimant, aged 41, suffered rib fractures and thoraco-lumbar spinal fractures in a road traffic accident. She required surgical fixation of the spinal fractures. She was, however, a stoic woman and concerned about job security so returned to work after 6 months whilst still in pain. As a result Defendants argued that she was not disabled and not at a substantial disadvantage in the labour market and didn’t require the amount of care. Gaurang prepared a detailed Schedule of Loss with a significant future loss of earnings and future cost of care claim setting out in detail the basis of the claim. The claim was settled for a 6 figure sum at JSM.
