unreported, 6th February 2012
Two claims arising out of a road traffic accident, both of which raised interesting and complicated issues of causation and quantum. The latter involved an airline pilot who, as a result of labyrinthine disorder of the inner ear, it was alleged would never work again, giving rise to a very substantial claim for loss of earnings. The Defendant asserted that the Claimant was exaggerating his symptoms, and that, in any event, he was capable of work. The medical and employment issues raised were complex and required the involvement of a number of experts in overlapping fields.
Sarah Prager was Counsel for the Defendant.
