JX MX (Protected Party) v. AX SX (Widow and Executrix of the Estate of PX SX, Deceased)

Citation[2012] (on-going on quantum)

Very high value catastrophic brain injury claim pleaded at in excess of £10 million. Young girl (‘C’) knocked down on pedestrian crossing by car driver sustaining catastrophic brain injury giving rise to ‘locked-in’ syndrome. Liability settled at 90:10 (approved by the High Court November 2012) with 10% discount for contributory negligence, as C started to cross before green man showing. Quantum is on-going and gives rise to novel issues given C’s extensive medical needs, the challenges of communication and the fact that she has returned to complete her secondary education.
