Provisional Damages Case Story
Master G’s Story
Master G was on his way to school and was crossing the road on a zebra crossing. He was hit by a car which failed to stop at the crossing. He suffered severe head injuries. The majority of his early head injuries affected his cognitive function and he became very angry and aggressive.
His claim was settled and the settlement approved by the Court as he was under 18. There was a risk in the future that he would develop epilepsy so the initial award of damages was a provisional award.
As a teenager he did develop epilepsy. Medical evidence linked this to the accident. His case was re-opened and he could claim further damages for his epilepsy.
