£217,500 Awarded In Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Compensation Claim
Suffering from chronic disease is obviously extremely difficult for the individuals involved and their families. Of course, claiming compensation for something that isn’t your fault is your right and a successful result makes life a little bit easier for those affected by the circumstances. However, obtaining a financial settlement can be a longer journey than many people would reasonably expect.
That was certainly the case for our client who developed complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS) from working as a maintenance engineer at a major international hotel chain. The condition can be difficult to diagnose and unfortunately for our client, his first attempt at compensation wasn’t a success with the first firm of solicitors that he used. Thankfully, his union United Voices of the World continued to support him and put him in touch with our specialist lawyer in complex chronic pain Kevin Digby.
Kevin quickly spotted the condition our client was suffering from and put him in touch with medical experts in both physical and psychological pain management for CPRS. Although his accident was back in 2017, Kevin successfully argued his case resulting in £217,500 compensation for our client who had lost his ability to gain income and actually had to move from London to live with his family in Argentina.
On receiving compensation, his wife said:
“It has been long and hard but thanks to you it was worth it. There were many times that I said to him to forget it but he couldn’t because he was healthy and after the accident, he was not. Thank God that someone suggested to contact you. Even though it has been long, we are happy with the result. Thank you for all the support, optimism, hard work, patience and for having a great team of professionals. You have given us a new beginning.”
