Road crash mother gives birth to brain damaged baby

A recently reported case in the High Court involved a boy who tragically was born severely disabled, shortly after his mother was involved in a car accident.

Court approves Brain Damage Compensation

He was still in the womb when in 2009 his mother suffered serious neck and back injuries in a car accident.  When her son was delivered shortly afterwards, he unfortunately was found to be suffering from severe brain damage.  In a claim being made for the boy who is now 4 years old, although medical experts could not agree on the extent to which the crash had caused the boy’s brain damage, if at all, the Court still approved a settlement of £2.5 million.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
