Mr S developed complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), a rare and poorly understood chronic pain condition, following a pothole accident on the M25.
Bikelawyer arranged for Mr S to be seen by a world-leading pain management expert, and made an application at Court that forced the Defendant to make an interim payment of £25,000 so that Mr S could receive specialist treatment.
The Defendant maintained throughout that Mr S did not have CRPS and that the symptoms he was suffering from were psychological and nothing to do with the accident. They also made a series of offers (starting at only £10,000) in an attempt to pressurise Mr S to settle.
Mr S stood firm and, with Bikelawer’s support and expertise, continued to investigate and build his case. The claim was eventually settled at a joint settlement meeting for £560,000: a 5600% increase on the Defendant’s original offer.
The case continues Bikelawyer’s track record of excellence with CRPS and chronic pain cases. Ian Dexter acted for Mr S.
