The largest amounts of compensation are usually awarded for genuinely catastrophic brain injury cases where the victim, unfortunately, is never going to recover fully and is in need of full time care. In this type of case compensation is usually awarded in the region of £400-500k; Steve Webb, who leads the TSP Personal Injury team says “I have probably dealt with 10 or more of this type of case in the last five years or so, but they are quite rare in personal injury. They are much more common in clinical negligence cases and in particular birth injury cases and compensation can in this type of case be measured in millions of pounds.”
