Exchange Chambers barrister secures £9.25m settlement

Pankaj Madan from Exchange Chambers in Leeds has secured a settlement of £9.25 million for a catastrophically injured young man.

The claimant was involved in a serious road traffic accident at the age of 13, leaving him with a range of life changing injuries, including catastrophic brain injury. 

In a long-running, sensitive and complex case, interim payments covered the cost of highly-effective rehabilitation and care, including a place at TRU, a specialist acquired brain injury rehabilitation facility that operates within residential units and community outreach to provide a full pathway of active rehabilitation, pre-community re-entry, supported living and community re-integration.

Utilising extensive expert evidence, Madan (led by Will Waldron QC) has now settled the case for £9.25 million on a lump sum basis.

With the claimant lacking capacity as a result of his injuries, the court approved the settlement, saying that in the particular and unique circumstances of the case, it represented the best outcome for the claimant.

Madan (pictured) specialises in catastrophic and life changing Injury with specialist expertise in brain injury, severe limb injury and high-value pain and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) claims.

Exchange Chambers is a full-service barristers’ chambers based in Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool.
