In the case of MNO v MOD, Christopher Walker represented a young soldier who suffered a severe brain injury and multiple orthopaedic injuries in an army parachute training jump when his parachute failed to deploy fully. While making a remarkable recovery from his orthopaedic injuries, the Claimant was left substantially disabled by his brain injury & consequential dysexecutive syndrome, resulting in a lack of capacity to manage his financial affairs and notable, if contested, care needs. Following a 82.5/17.5% liability apportionment in the Claimant’s favour, on 3 April 2018 the High Court approved a mixed capital/ppo settlement to the fully capitalised value of £4.95 million.
Christopher Walker was instructed by David Robinson of Thompsons.
